Glitter Eyed Skull Mask

A1155

8″ high

Great piece of folk art, which was inspired by the papier mâché masks of Celeya in the 1940's. Great wall decoration. These come in bright assorted eye colors. These masks were actually used in the Independence parades of 16 de September, not for Day of the Dead. But, who cares?

These masks are frequently used by dance troops and Day of the Dead festival goers. One would have to punch a hole in the sides with a nail and thread some ribbon through to tie it on, if you actually wanted to use the mask.
