Deer Mask Head Piece

$195.00

This deer mask head piece is inspired by the deer masks for the Venado dance in Guatemala. The deer comes out from behind the dog and speaks in the middle of the field: What so fatal a predicament in which I am presently that they dare to follow me until they catch me when I am tired. I do not do anything bad to anyone is that they will not do the same to me and so I am not able to get away and to you, Uncle, they will do the same when you come out to graze. See that there is great risk and do not drop your guard.

This mask is made in three parts. The head is one part. The antlers are another part and the last one is the helmet insert that goes into the bottom of the mask. The mask is lined with soft foam so as t create a snug fit for the wearer. This is one of the favorite mask in the studio.

This animal mask was commissioned by students in a devising class. The task was to create story based on specific cultural research and a variety of masks form different world cultures.
