The Skull Mask with Movable Jaw is a classic death mask for street carnivals, Day of the Dead, Mardi Gras or Halloween. If its time to honor the dead, celebrate the ancestors, dance before a burial, visit a grave or chase the evil spirits away then the Skull mask is in need.
This traditional mask of transformation is built in two parts. The lower part inserts underneath the upper part and is strapped over the top of the head with an elastic. This allows for the movement of the lower jaw of the mask when the masker moves their own jaw up and down. The upper part of the mask is strapped behind the head and the wide eyes are screened to prevent the viewer experiencing the mask from the seeing the eyes of the performer behind.
