Even though I’m not a Lucha Libre fan, I know this guy is a currently popular wrestler from Mexico. I’ve seen his picture before. That’s saying something because there are hundreds of wrestlers that wear different masks… and they retire that unique design when the athlete ends his career.Many of the Lucha Libre masks are innovative, eye-catching, and certainly an important category of folk art. Mexican wrestling dates back to 1863. An historic cultural phenomenon, the masks are the signature of the wrestler, and often his face is never seen or identified. These masks offer a wonderful collecting opportunity for someone who wants to specialize.
