Masks

 

Of all the icons made in the Americas, the one that is most consistent,

regardless of the country, is the mask.
While transcending borders, and revealing a great deal about

the culture, folk tales, and superstitions of a group, they also

celebrate life and death on many levels.

Working in Mexico it is not hard to find numerous styles
of masks, and I simply had to bring back a few.

The sun and moon are present on many masks.

The mask above by Felipe Perez Aygn is a beautiful
example of the style. This is a large mask.

__________________________________________________

I found these hand-painted masks on a blanket with a lot of Talavera items.

They are unique, and very highly detailed. 

These are not big masks, and are

painted on high fired red terra cotta. There were only one of each

of these masks. They have holes in the back for hanging.

This mask is very traditional.  It is made by the artist

in homes around Tlaquepacque for luck.

The artist who makes our terrific dogs and cats made this

mask.  It is his copy of a mask that hangs in the Museum of

Folk Art in Mexico City.  It represents part of the Aztec myth of

Quetzalcoatl, the only God to have a human avatar.

Guadalupe Lopez, who makes the women's busts and heads
