festivale latinos 3

It says Devil of Yare from Venezuela on the name tag. All I know is it didn't scare any children away. On the contrary, the salt-and-pepper haired lady behind the mask was surrounded by them. Everywhere she walked, children followed. She was saying things to them but I didn't understand a word. All I know fluently in Spanish is Agua de Beber but I doubt she was enticing them with water.

One more shot of the festival tomorrow and this colourful series comes to an end.

Mask in so many cultures are wonderfully designed and presented. This is a wonderfully symbolic face, I'd bet.
