Mexican Tastoanes Mask. Santa Cruz de las Huerta, Jalisco, Mexico. Painted plaster on top of leather, ixtle fibers. A Mask for the Jalisco Tastones Dances from the ceramic-producing town of Santa Cruz de las Huerta. Made of plaster or clay modeled over a leather base. Sculpted with exaggerated nose and mouth, many also have reptiles applied to parts of the face, adding to the grotesque effect. The hair is attached with string to holes across the forehead.
