According to Guatemalan artisan Arturo Aj Canil, this mask represents the death of Spanish conquistadores at the hands of Guatemalan warriors. Hand-carved of pinewood, the fierce face of a jaguar represents Guatemala, descending upon the three faces of the frightened colonials. A hand-painted finish completes this evocative piece of wall decor.

"Worth the wait"
Mask was on backorder so delivery took a little longer than most from Novica, but once delivered, it was definitely worth the wait. Love the attention to detail in the painted features. The colors are even more vivid than whats pictured. Looking forward to hanging it on my wall.
