Devil Face Small Mask
This devil-face wall mask, carved from the precious tropical hardwood known locally as ronron, is a smaller version of the traditional, hand-carved wood diablo mask-type used by the Brunka to represent themselves in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos. The feline head between the horns is a traditional attribute of these particular tribal masks.
In the ceremony, the antagonist, the toro (bull), represents the invading Spanish. Carved by the renowned Brunka mask maker, Omer Morales, notable mask maker and dvenerated elder of Rey Curre village.
