What we can tell you is that the owner bought this 30 years ago from a dealer who scoured Mexico at the time for great objects of art. Both she and her husband fell in love. A few of them were purchased and kept for their collection. Well, she is now ready to let someone else enjoy them. The masks from Mexico are synonymous with the vibrance of the color of the culture. These particular masks have a beautiful layering process of wood, plaster, and dyes to create these works of art.
