Carnival boy – red serpent mask


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. A young boy celebrates carnival with a red serpent weaving around his white face, and his torso painted black. Many carnival celebrants cover their bodies in motor oil. 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.
