Nine Peruvian Andes Polychrome Ceremonial Dance Masks
Peruvian Andes Polychrome Ceremonial Dance Masks, Folk Art Mid. 20th Century. These amazingly crafted masks were fashioned after those worn by the indigenous people of Peru living under the Spanish occupation which began in 1531. At a time when the Spanish allowed little room for self expression among native Peruvians, the indigenous people crafted these masks for their dance festivals, subtly mocking their overlords. Each mask is made from wood, and then carefully painted over with strikingly vibrant color.
