Featured in this lot is this mask of a captain character for the "Dance of Santiago." This is a ceremonial mask specifically for this dance and is attributed to early to mid-1900's. Santiago is the Christian saint, James the Apostle. The dance originated on the Iberian Peninsula in the twelfth century, during a time of constant warfare when there was a push by the Spanish Christian population to displace the Moors, who had conquered the peninsula in the preceding centuries. The dance was brought to Mexico in the 16th century with the Conquistadors, where it became a traditional dance in the statehood of Puebla. The condition of this mask is good, with no obvious signs of damage. The measurements of this wooden mask are 8 1/2" x 5 3/4" x 4 1/4” and the hair measures 22".
