  • Description:

    This crudely made and painted mask,
    missing its antlers, (notice the holes on the
    sides), still evokes the face painting of
    ancient ceremonies. Facial painting and
    scarification once identified the priests and
    other performers in the sacred rituals as
    actors dwelling in that state where man and
    god are one. The tire inner tube, used here to
    fabricate the mask's ears, has been an
    important material in mask making. The
    introduction of the radial tire will have a
    profound effect on the art.

    Aunque a esta máscara le faltan sus
    cuernos y está tallada y pintada de una
    forma primitiva, todavía trae recuerdos
    de las caras pintadas en las ceremonias
    antiguas. En las viejas épocas, las caras
    pintadas y los diseños hechos con
    cicatrices identificaron a los sacerdotes y
    a otros intérpretes de los rituales
    sagrados como actores que vivían en un
    estado donde el hombre y dios son lo
    mismo. El tubo que se encuentra dentro
    de la llanta de hule ha sido un importante
    material en la elaboración de máscaras.
    La introducción de la llanta radial tendrá
    un profundo efecto sobre este arte.
