Boruca Mask

A 'Diablito' mask from the Boruca tribe (indigenous to the south Pacific coast of Costa Rica) that I picked up at the Galeria Namu in San Jose.


Canon 580EX on a stand low camera right, and behind the mask fired back towards it. handheld gold reflector to camera left put some light back onto the mask, and a handheld white foamcore board used camera right to add a little extra fill on the right side. Incense stick added just below mask for effect.
