Details

This cat is full of character, not to mention color. Victor Hernandez hand-carves this decorative balsa wood mask in the image of a jungle cat. Brass eyelets and an agave cord are attached to the back for easy hanging.

The Boruca people live in southwestern Costa Rica. Devil masks are part of a centuries-old festival called "The Game of the Devils," honoring the Boruca's fight to defend their land from invading Spaniards. During the festival, the masked actors portray defenders fighting a bull, representing Spain. The bull is a large costume that takes about ten men to maneuver. Victor Hernandez learned the art of Boruca mask carving at the side of his father.
