Guatemalan monkey mask

Don’s mask of The Mexican from a Guatemalan dance inspired me to share this picture with you of The Monkey. There are lots of different animal masks used in the popular Deer Dance. Best liked by tourists and collectors is the monkey character. This one is old and used. Newer ones are usually painted in bright black, white and red, with no golden hair. This little country practices masquerade a lot. As you can see on the list to the right, a separate category is devoted to Guatemala.
