The Giant Ritual Mask
This decorative mask is hand-carved and hand-painted using traditional techniques by skilled artisans from the Chané indigenous group in Salta, Argentina.
These ritual masks are used in the Andean Carnaval, which blends Incan festivities including tributes to the Pachamama (mother earth), and the Catholic Carnival.
Please note this mask is made of the porous native Argentine wood called Palo Borracho and is intended for decorative purposes only.
Size: 25.5in x 7.5in x 4in
Saw a toucan chane mask while travelling in Salta (was decoration in a restaurant), and despite my best efforts could not find a shop selling it during my trip. After searching high and low, I stumbled upon Fields. Ryan from the team let me be the first to know about restocks so I could snap up the best toucan mask fo the bunch. Very happy!
I’ve always been looking for a fox head like this, but didn’t expect it to be made of wood and hand-painted! It’s going to hang proudly in my house. Photos to come!
We LOVE these masks! You can tell everyone you get is one of a kind and so unique. We get so many compliments on them and we cannot wait to keep building our collection!
These are really beautifully made and the color is incredible.
