The Masks of Marcilio Barroco Curated by: Koshari
Whether it's for theater or carnival, the masks of Marcillio Barroco of Brazil are expertly crafted and sure to delight. From the artist: "When someone puts on a mask, actually, he is unmasking himself, as hidden aspects of his personality become visible." "Brazil is a country of racial mixtures with an enormous diversity of human types and archetypes. It is as if all of the masks of the world have passed through here. The cultural wealth is enormous and with this, a lot of 'raw material' exists to elaborate new pieces and I try to look for images linked to the Brazilian identity. As an artist, I insist on affirming myself as black, because in Brazil something terrible exists ? that is the social invisibility of the African descendant."

About the Curator
I love world cultures, art, archaeology, ancient history and anything ethnic and tribal. I'm an advocate for human rights and the environment. I'm a 3D content creator in various virtual worlds. I love curating for Novica! It's a balancing act to add interesting and complimentary images from the mood gallery without taking away from, or overpowering the products ... it can be a challenge but one that I thoroughly love doing. There are so many great artisans to try to represent, I hope to eventually include all of them in my gallery.
