Andean Dragon Mask
During the Andean Colonial Period there was a collision between the European Mannerist
depiction ofWinged Dragons and the Indigenous Culture of Perus depiction of the Mythical
Serpent Amari that resulted in the creation of this style of mask. At first created in wood
and beginning in the late 19th C, crafted in tin.
This example, in tin, with the addition of painted rubber wings is mid 20th C.
In very good, original condition. Includes a metal display stand.
From nose to horn tip 20"
