Tecuan Mirror Mask
This type of mask is often used during the folklor dance "La Danza de los Tecuanes", one of the most popular festivities of the Nahua culture in Guerrero. The dance tells the story of a wild jaguar that eats people and kills domestic animals with a whip. While doctors treat the injured and vultures wait impatiently, some hunters chase the jaguar and eventually take it away.
This dance actually simbolizes the struggle between human beings and nature while trying to protect the crops and is performed to drive away harm and attract rainfalls for the harvests.
