Photo gallery from the Mask Museum

Ana Maria and I visited the Mask Museum, located in Plaza del Carmen. There was little explanation, but the building is one of the oldest in SLP.

 

This museum is considered among the best in Mexico due to its peculiar collection of nearly a thousand masks from every corner of the country. Upstairs is a small collection of Asian masks, mainly from India.

Magic and tradition are intertwined with symbolism, much of which is lost in time. This is an institution dedicated to the study and promotion of Mexican masks as a significant cultural product, aspiring to present the most characteristic masks and the endless traditions that represent the world, while linking the symbolism with different art expressions.

It even has a room especially for potosinas masks!
