Dance Masks

Carved masks from Guerrero

Gallery owner Mayer Shacter recently purchased several amazing old masks from a wood carver in the state of Guerrero, the likes of which he has never seen before, even in books. He also purchased ornately carved staffs that are used in dances, and primitive carved wood talismans used by young men and women who are seeking a mate. These are male/female figures that the seeker must bury in a prescribed ritual to encourage the fates to bring them their desired mate!
