Mexican dance mask from Oaxaca

On my recent trip to Mexico City I only saw authentic dance masks in museums and an old shop called Victor’s Artes Populares Mexicanas, not in markets or the streets. Though Victor’s few masks were excellent, I only bought some little carvings for grandchildren and friends.

The unusual mask shown here I found on the internet, not Mexico City. Oaxaca offers collectors a wide variety of masks because there are so many ethnic groups living in this southern state.
