Details

Artisans Juan and Carolina draw inspiration from the traditional Guatemalan Burning of the Devil feast for this magical hand-carved mask. Sturdy pine wood and local agave fibers combine with hand-painted details to create an eye-catching mix of textures and patterns that give this piece plenty of character. The ears and horns are carved separately and are dismountable for safe and easy transport. Every 7th of December, Guatemalans grab everything that they are ready to let go of that year and put it in massive bonfires for the Burning of the Devil feast. The celebrations culminate with the Dance of the 24 Devils where figures wearing masks like this one perform theatrical dances that mix native Mayan and colonial Spanish traditions.

This rustic St. Francis greets guests to my house at a small table by the front door, his complement of birds telling everyone that this is a house where animals are cherished. Wonderful workmanship.

I wanted something fun to hang in my kitchen. The chicken did the trick! It was much larger than expected and the colors and paint are all very well done. I highly recommend Juan and Carolina.

"Distinctive!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Very distinctive mask for Dia de los Muertos. My husband will add it to his mask collection. I had thought it would have a shiny coating but it appears to be flat paint. Also, my husband would like to know Juan and Carolinas last name and their country. Otherwise, we like the mask--It is very colorful.
