This mask originates from the Oruro region of Bolivia. La Diablada is a masked dance to appease the evil spirit of the mines, and developed an additional meaning after Christianity took hold in the culture - it was adapted to represent good (Archangel Michael) versus evil (Lucifer).

Devil Dance Mask made from papier-mâché, plaster, glass, wood. Probably Aymara Bolivia ca.
