Blue man Tilcajete carnival


25 in stock

Prior to Ash Wednesday the village of Tilcajete, near Oaxaca, celebrates carnival with imaginative animal and creature masks in chanting, grunting, colorful processions. Here, a carnival celebrant wears blue face paint with a jaguar mask on top of his head, and peacock feathers fanned out behind his head. (I have a similar shot of his female companion.) Bekki and I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, February of 2020 with my sister and brother-in-law who organize cultural trips to Central America and Mexico.
