This pair of vintage ceremonial masks from Mexico represent Pañol (El Patrón or Spaniard) and Juan Negro (the Spaniard's black foreman). These two lead characters perform together in the Juanegro Dance Drama, a humorous performance in which both men vie for the love of the same woman. This popular drama is a reenactment of the conflicts that arise between the wealthy hacienda owner and Juan Negro.
