Devil masks are made of wood and are used in various dances and representations during Christmas; some of these representations are called Pastorelas, and tell how a shepherd on his way to visit baby Jesus is tempted by the devil. Although they represent evil, these devils are humorous and amuse the spectators. The devil masks are used in Guerrero, Michoacan and Colima. Not sure of the age of this but it came from the estate of a UC Berkeley California professor.
