Details

With serpents slithering from its eyes like tears rolling down, this lagrimon (tearful) mask represents a Wari shaman. Jaime Zapata finds inspiration in the art and beliefs of this legendary culture, which associated serpents with wise shamans who also advised on agricultural activities. Zapata crafts the mask by hand with recycled paper, using red jasper for the eyes and ears. The headdress is woven in shades of red, turquoise and black, and features several rush reeds.

This is a great mask. I have had it up on the wall for a few months now and it looks great alongside my other masks.

"Black Turtle Neck Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I call this my Black Turtle Neck artwork, because I think its something a beatnik would have appreciated back in the late 1950s. Sure, its mass produced by hand. But it has so much symbolism and meaning packed into its simple motif, I dont get tired of looking at it. I love having it on my wall.

This shadow box and mask is stunning. Its highly detailed. It came so quickly from South America . I will either hang it or stand it up on a book shelf. Highly recommend! Thank you, Mr. Espinoza for such fine work!

From my travels in South America and my knowledge of Incan culture (Im a retired Spanish teacher), these masks are great replicas of typical Incan artifacts.

Very well done and attractive. My only negative is that I wish it were a bit larger. Craftsmanship is excellent, beautiful piece.
