Details

Costa Rica's Boruca people have become famous for the whimsical masks they create for their annual 'Dance of the Devils' feast. As part of these celebrations, tribesmen perform a series of dances reenacting the Spanish conquest clad in masks meant to ward off evil spirits.

Artisan Marcos Rojas combines the colors of the Costa Rican jungle in this detailed mask. He carves it from balsa wood and combines rich hand-painted designs in contrasting colors. The mask comes with an agave fiber loop for easy installation and is signed by the artist as Arte indígena Boruca, Costa Rica (Indigenous Boruca Art, Costa Rica) in the back.
