Guatemalan Mask Handcrafted Cultural Folk Art meant to be a Dance Mask. This mask represents a Spanish Man or Spanish Conquistador with golden hair and moustache and light skin. The mask skin is painted with a reddish tint because the Spanish conquistadors had light skin and were often sun burned, according to the folklore. The mask would have been worn for the Dance of the Conquest. It does not appear to have been "danced" or worn.

6 1/2" wide, 8" tall with a depth that is hard to measure but will fit the face. There is a wire attached to existing holes to facilitate hanging for display. It is wooden and carved, nicely painted with what is probably acrylic. One of several masks from a collector. I am not expert in "mask-ology" so I can't vouch for it's age but I can say that it is probably from the last part of the 20th century and would give a very nice decorative touch to any decor...home or office.
