Traditional Wood Masks
The designs of these hand made wood masks from the state of Guerrerro are often based on ceremonial dance masks that have been used for centuries in fiestas that honor specific sacred occasions, saints and historical events. Representations of combinations of deities, animals and common archetypes are also found in masks from this region.
Celestial Beings, Angels, Devils and Death are also predominant themes.
