Peruvian Andes Wooden Polychrome Ceremonial Dance Mask of a Spaniard with Mustache

Peruvian Andes Wooden Polychrome Ceremonial Dance Mask of a Spaniard with Mustache, Folk Art Mid 20th Century. These amazingly crafted masks were fashioned after those worn by the indigenous people of Peru living under the Spanish occupation which began in 1531. At a time when the Spanish allowed little room for self expression among native Peruvians, the indigenous people crafted these masks for their dance festivals, subtly mocking their overlords. Each mask is made from wood, and then carefully painted over with strikingly vibrant color. This particular mask mocks fun at the Spanish Overlords with two insects crawling on the nose and cheek.
