  • Description:

    Pascola mask motifs come from face
    painting. The Pascolas clear the area and
    entertain the crowd before the Deer Dance,
    but their role is infinitely more important. The
    mask allows them to enter the world of the
    spirit and through ritual bring that sacred
    realm into Man's world. All participants
    recognize that the Pascolas make this
    difficult journey on their behalf. The word
    'Pascola' comes from 'pahko'ola' meaning
    'Old Man of the Ceremony'. The term comes
    from two words: pahko-ceremony and o'olaan
    affectionate term for old man. The two
    words were shortened into pahko'ola and
    are pronounced pascola in Spanish.
    'Pascolas are individuals who perform as a
    result of dreamed visions. Their knowledge
    is gained from animals of the woods, rather
    than from Christian supernaturals.'
    (Fontana, Flaubert, Burn 1977).

    Yaqui Pascola
    2000 Acrílico en fibracel (81cm X 61cm)
    Los motivos de las máscaras Pascola se
    originan en pinturas faciales. Los Pascola
    limpian el área y entretienen a la
    muchedumbre antes de la Danza del
    Venado, pero su papel es infinitivamente
    más importante. La máscara les permite
    entrar mediante rituales en el mundo de los
    espíritus y devolver ese mundo sagrado al
    mundo del Hombre. Todos los participantes
    reconocen que los Pascolas recorren este
    difícil camino en beneficio de ellos. La
    palabra 'Pascola' viene de 'pahko'ola que
    significa 'Hombre Viejo de la Ceremonia'.
    El término proviene de dos palabras: pahko
    o 'ceremonia' y o'ola un término afectuoso
    de referirse al hombre viejo. Las dos
    palabras se acortaron a 'pahko'ola' y se
    pronuncia 'pascola' en español.
    'Los Pascolas' son individuos que actúan a
    consecuencia de sus visiones soñadas. Sus
    conocimientos fueron aprendidos de los
    animales del bosque y no de los Cristianos
    sobrenaturales.'(Fontana, Flaubert, Burn
