Gorgeous brown painted bull mask with red and black details decorated with golden painted horns. The licking tongue and its teeth are signs of the animal’s fury. The black painted forehead and eyes are highlighted with low relieve details.  Notice the two carved-in holes in the forehead that enable the dancer to see. Different layers of paint and patina on the back denote use. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
