Seller: artemisgallery (669) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381865853424 Mexican Mayo Pascola Chivo Polychrome Mask - Cross Latin America, Mexico, Rio Fuerte, Sinaloa, Mayo Indians, ca. 1970 CE. A carved polychromed wood chivo pascola mask created by the Mayo Indians. A lively example painted in hues of red, black and white with a black cross prominently positioned on the forehead. Perforations surrounding the periphery once held rope or hair for additional detail and interest when moved about during ritual dances. The pascola is one of the personages that stands out most as a dancer, leader orator, and community clown in religious festivities and ceremonies. The term pascola may derive from the Spanish term pascua and relate to the Catholic ceremony of the Pascua de Resurreccion (Lent). It may also derive from the word pahko’ola, a pre-hispanic Cahita word which literally translates as “the old man of the ceremony". The dances and music performed by the pascolas indicates the wonderfully rich blend of European Catholic and indigenous traditions in this part of the world. Wired for suspension. Cord for wearing.
