Elegant in emerald green, this wide-eyed mask represents the art and customs of the Moche people. Masks were made as part of the funerary paraphernalia of lords and dignitaries. They symbolized their prayers to the Apus or deities residing in the mountains of the Andes. Peru's Jaime Zapata Espinoza masterfully replicates this Moche mask with papier mâché, and presents it in a wood shadow box.
