Puerto Rican masks

We've spent 2 weeks working on more masks. This time inspired by vejigante (pronounced beh-hee-gahn-teh) - a common folkloric character seen in Puerto Rico during festival celebrations. The characters march in parades wearing colourful, ornate masks and costumes with bat wings. The masks represent demons, and were used in religious festivals and processions to try to scare people to go back to church! Check out the kids' stunning creations!
