M19-09 Carnaval mask by Vicente Hernandez Oaxaca

325.00

I found this hand-carved and painted mask at the home of Oaxacan carver Vicente Hernandez when I was in his village for the annual Carnaval celebration. It had been worn to previous Carnaval celebrations. The mask is in good condition, but the sisal hair had gotten wet and some had fallen off. The mask can be seen in the last frame of this video about the artist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Omn3ppDNQpI The video shows horns, but the horns were not attached to the mask when I bought it. 9 1/2”W X 10”L X 7 1/2”D. Beard adds about 15” more in length. All prices include shipping within the U.S.
