3 Vejigantes from Puerto Rico

I just found this photo of three papier mache masks which are worn by Puerto Rican marchers at carnival time. They are decorated differently and obviously made by the same guy. You can see more typical Vejigantes by going to the Caribbean Category on this site. I live in downtown Lancaster, PA, which has a large population of Puerto Ricans living within walking distance of me, but these three masks were photographed on the island… a great place for masquerade.  1205
