Caretas de carnaval, 1911.
Wild Boar Piglet, 1578, by Hans Hoffmann, circa 1530-
A boy looks as men dressed as “Diablos de Luzon” (Luzon Devils) pose for a portrait during carnival celebrations in the Spanish village of Luzon on March 1. The “Diablos” cover themselves in a mixture of soot and oil and adorn their heads with black stained bull horns as they parade throughout the village with cowbells clanging around their waist to expel the evil spirits. To make their appearance even more fearsome the devils often carry fake teeth made out of raw potatoes. They dance around Luzon and smear their black grease on revelers faces. The only people free from the attack of the “Diablos” are those who dress up as “Mascaritas”. They are characters dressed in traditional women clothing with their faces covered with a white cloth. To the beat of traditional music the “Diablos” and the “Mascaritas” parade throughout the village in the afternoon in this carnival tradition that is thought to have pre-Christian origins.
