Vintage Guerrero Jaguar (Tigre) Mask Devil
Ht. 24" x W. 28" x D. 19"
Devil masks represent evil of course, but they are often humorous and combine several traditions. This ceremonial Guerrero mask by an anonymous carver combines the devil with a winged nahual (magical mythological creature, half human, half animal). Guerrero mask carvers combine skill with unlimited imagination. Last half of the 20th century.
