This piece is a very rare mask, not many characters are painted with non traditional colours. The traditional workshops for the South Coast have started with these kinds of decorations because they like the way the masks reflect the shine. This mask has a very smooth patina that tells us its age, as well as different layers of paint. The piece is decorated with high relieve hair, moustache, beard and teeth carvings, including the black pained eyes. The character represents a Spanish soldier form the Dance of the Conquest. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
