- Additional information:
This mask is called “pito o colán” The mask provides the possibility to those who wear it, to transform into a “Jaguar God”, a deity of Mesoamerican cultures, and to perform that duality between human and divine.
In the “Jaguar Dance”, one of the dancers carries the mask, starring in the role of the beast, and another dancer assumes the role of the hunter (“rastrero o rastreador”), always accompanied by “perra maravilla” (the wonderful dog), who is in charge of sniffing the tracks of the pursued jaguar.
