This Brunka mask, with a sinister countenance and a couple of smaller diablito faces in the composition, features magnificent multi-faceted designs at times alluding to petroglyphs and animal skins.
The mask itself corresponds to the traditional diablo mask-type used by the Brunka people in their Danza de los Diablitos.
The accomplished tribal artists of the Rojas-Gonzalez family of Boruca village, carved and painted this two-faced mask in balsa wood.
