Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries ceremonial dance masks in both Mexico and Guatemala were carved prolifically but the esoteric Bolivian counterpart was far less common. In Bolivia the masks and costumes that accompany the dance ceremonies assist in explaining the synthesis of pagan, Andean and Catholic ideologies. One such dance, the most popular of all Andean folkloric dances, is 'La Danza de los Diablos' or 'The Dance of the Devils', represented by Saint Michael, Lucifer and and a wide cast of sacred animals including the rooster offered here. Unlike the wooden masks to the north, this Bolivian mask is made entirely of cold rolled tin plate. Circa 1950's.
Dimensions: 12 inches high x 10 inches wide x 10 inches deep.
Condition notes: in original condition with good wear and surface patina commensurate with age.
