Guatemalan Folk Art | 28 Images

 

In addition to our stunning collection of traditional, antique Guatemalan dance masks we feature santos and other religious folk art made by indigenous santeros. We also have a large collection of antique, one-of-a-kind folk dolls representing Maximon, Guatemala's unique "patron saint of the sinners", as well as hand-carved antique slingshots of the highest quality which are miniature wood sculptures of tremendous beauty and expressiveness, haunting sculptures of "Judas" or "gigante" heads which are part of Guatemala's Holy Week pageants, and much more.
