Our new book, Masks of the World, is divided into 14 categories of masks. In chapters on Africa, India & Himalayas, East Asia, etc. you can easily picture the area we’re dealing with. Our Caribbean chapter covers a lot more territory than the name implies. I have found that masquerade of the Northern edge of South America and some of Central America is strongly influenced by the Caribbean. And why not? These large areas surrounding the sea are heavily populated by the same African/Spanish/Indian cultures as the islands. This wild and crazy mask is from Portobelo, Panama, which is located on the east shoreline facing the Caribbean Sea. Bob, 1071
