This Diablito Mask is a captivating representation of duality and balance. Crafted by Juan Carlos Rojos, it showcases a unique design: half skull and half flesh, symbolizing the thin line between life and death, the seen and the unseen. The mask, painted with precision, captures the essence of the Boruca's deep philosophical insights and their unparalleled craftsmanship.
The mask's design, with one half depicting a skull and the other half flesh, is a profound reflection of the Boruca's understanding of life, death, and the cyclical nature of existence. It's a tribute to their beliefs, their reverence for the natural order, and their deep philosophical insights.
The bejuco hair adds a touch of rustic charm, further enhancing its traditional appeal. The head strap, made from a black cut inner tube, ensures the mask's secure fit, allowing it to be worn or displayed with reverence.
The mask's vibrant painting captures the essence of the Boruca's artistic prowess. Every detail, every stroke, speaks of their dedication, skill, and the deep significance of their rituals.
