Peruvian artisan Edit Sanchez handcrafts a decorative mask out of strong and lightweight acrylic resin, inspired by the masks used in traditional folk dances in the artisan's native Cusco region that tell a satiric story. Small enough to fit in the palm of the hand, this mask is inspired by The Dance Auqa Chileno, and satirizes the Chilean soldiers that invaded Peru in the war of the Pacific in 1879. This character with exaggerated features has a pink face, blue eyes, brown and gold striped eyebrows, and golden mustache and beard. A triangular bar on the back makes it easy to hang on the wall.
