Throughout the 19th and early 20th century innumerable ceremonial dance masks were carved in both Mexico and Guatemala but the more esoteric Bolivian tin counterparts are much less common. In Bolivia the masks and costumes that accompany the dance ceremonies assist in explaining the synthesis of pagan, Andean and Catholic culture, religion and ideology. One such dance, the most popular of all Andean folkloric dances, is 'La Danza de los Diablos' or 'The Dance of the Devils', which includes a wide cast of characters - Saint Michael, angels, demons, the Condor and Lucifer to name a few. Unlike the wooden masks to the north, Bolivian masks are made entirely of cold rolled tin plate, hand cut, shaped and painted with the crown clad in animal hyde. Circa 1950's.
Dimensions: mask measures 12 inches high x 10 inches wide x 10 inches deep. Overall height on stand is 16.75 inches.
Condition notes: in original condition with good wear and surface patina commensurate with age.
