This is a new take on a traditional style pascola dance masks. A co-op was started for the women of the tribe, who wanted to carve masks like the pacolas. This mask is a lizard. Very nicely hand carved and painted by Virginia Hernander. Carved from capal wood, and the hair is goat. This mask is 7 1/2" long and 4 1/2" wide.
