Decorative Masks from the Dance of the Hue Hues, Puebla
AMAZING! These are LARGE, very unique decorative masks which come from Puebla, Mexico. The mask is made of paper mache, the face is lacquered and the features are those of the conquering Spaniards, thus very European looking. The feather plumes are made of shredded paper and are moveable. They are modeled after the masks worn in Tlaxcala, Mexico for the Dance of the Hue Hues to commemorate the battles between the Spaniards and the indigenous people of Puebla.
One of each color available.
These are not masks to be worn but for display only. The back of the face is flat so it sits well against the wall.
