This is an artistic representation of the fierce character that lives in every Boruca tribesman.

A break from the traditional Boruca mask, this work of art belongs to young artisan Randall, a member of an artisan group lead by Master Craftman Ismael Gonzalez Lazaro.

Randall, and 12 other Boruca children, were trained by Ismael Gonzalez in the art of mask making when they were in their early teens and now, 15 years later, are introducing designs with a personal touch.

This mask breaks with tradition in four areas: the size, this mask is 16 inches tall; the composition of the evil characteristics, the choice of wood which is balsa and the colorful painting.

IMPORTANT: these masks are a work of art and it is impossible to make them all look the same. Subtle differences in the carving and painting pattern might be found.

You can never expect your mask to look exactly like the one pictured here. Please don't consider these differences a mistake on our part.
