Q: I acquired a few more masks in the last few weeks. The last is an Azteca mask from Danza de la Conquista in Veracruz. I’m sure you’ll recognize it. I won that at an auction along with 2 diablo con chintetes masks from Guerrero, which I’m going to sell. Enjoy! Aaron, 915
A: We are so lucky that Aaron continues to share his great finds with us. This is one of the most extraordinary dance masks from Mexico. Or anywhere for that matter. Look at that amazing protrusion comming out of the face! A similar Azteca is shown and described on page 124 of our new book, Masks of the World. Azteca is how the Mexicans spell Aztec.
