Description Firmly padded carnival cloth doll with colourful painted mask. This type of doll is a perfect reproduction of the real "diablos", "lechones" and "cachuas" from the Dominican Republic carnival. They are made in secret in little out of the way places where no-one would ever realise that there was a work of art being created there. The Dominican Carnival is one of the most colourful around the world. These Dominican Carnival traditions date back to the 1800's. Approx. 13" high. Dominican Republic. 2009. Makers marks: None.
