Mexican Mask “Dance of the Moors” M896

A character from the traditional Dance of the Moors and Christians. This rather old mask hails from Chiapas, Mexico or perhaps Guatemala. Here we have one of the Moors, the villains of course, with his beardy face and terrifyingly bushy eyebrows belying his rather pleasantly regular features. Wonderful high coloring to suggest a high degree of choler, that medieval signifier for a fiery temperament.

6″ wide x 9″ high x 4 1/2″ deep.
