Rainbow striped knit mask with contrasting eyebrows and face colors. Pulls over the head and has eye, nose and mouth openings. Masks, such as this one, are called waq'ollos in Quechua, a local Peruvian dialect. Primarily worn and seen during the Peruvian Festival of Qoyllur Riti, Lord of the Snow Star ceremonies, you can wear yours on the ski slopes or in the snowy cold outdoors. 13 inches long by 9.5 inches wide when measured flat. One size fits most. Your choice of solid face colors. Some of the mask's facial features, such as eyebrows, mustaches, and chin tufts, and placement of the rainbow color stripes, may vary slightly from those depicted. Made in Peru.
The wantana is a typical clothing accessory in several Peruvian communities; a handwoven cord or tie ending in a threaded tassel at both ends can be used for many things: tie one on your hat as a stylish hatband or chin strap, weave it into your hair or other hair ornaments; use it to tie up your despacho cloth to carry your Pachamama offering to the ceremonial site or whatever else you want to adorn with beauty, color and functionality! This one has many tiny white beads. Yours may differ slightly from the photo due to its handmade nature. Sold individually. From the Q'ero of Peru.
