Wonderful large Jaguar (El Tigre) Mask from the Mexican state of Guerrero. Mask is nearly 16-1/2" Tall, 14-1/2" wide and 7" deep. See true scale of piece compared to a can of soda in photo #3. Used in a ceremonial dance usually in full body costume hand painted on light weight canvas. This Mask was most likely made for the decorative market. You rarely see these larger masks on the market. Mainly, very small ones are made for the tourist trade. Purchased from an Estate along with the other masks I'll have up for sale in the coming days.

As a result of this historical-cultural background, the jaguar symbol became amalgamated or confused with that of the tiger.
