In rural Mexico, folk festivals and the dances that accompany them mark the high point of life. In preparation for these festivities, local artisans combine Old and New World traditions to forge an awe-inspiring array of masks, many of which are acclaimed and sought after by international collectors. This strikingly illustrated volume celebrates these wonderfully inventive masks and their creators in a rich display of artistry, vitality, beauty, and whimsy. Including a spectacular gallery of 130 full-color photographs and a fascinating text, Mask Arts of Mexico will inspire and inform anyone with an interest in folk art, photography, or anthropology.
