These paper mache "mamertos" which is often translated as "idiot" or "buffoon," come from Puebla, Mexico. These super cute, sombrero-wearing, colorfully-suited paper mache figure are happy additions to any folk art collection or would be terrific as a party centerpiece. They have charming mustaches made of "fur" and a rotund belly and posterior. They stand on their own with a small cardboard base.
