- Carver & Legacy: While the inside of the mask bears the name Gilberto Lavva G., the true mastermind behind this masterpiece is Jorge Gonzalez, a prodigy of Ismail Gonzalez and now a revered elder. Acting as the "Cacique" or chief of Diablitos in 2002 and 2003, Jorge's spirit and leadership are imbued in this mask. Gilberto, having sold the mask on Jorge's behalf, left his mark, adding another layer to its rich history.
- Historical Period: 2000 – 2003, a time of leadership and spiritual reflection in Boruca Village
- Material: Balsa wood, colored with natural wood and vegetative dyes
