Antique guatemalan mask of Conquistador.
Carved wooden mask depicting a Spanish conquistador.

It probably dates to the 19th century, but could be early 20th century.

Inset eyes below openings for the dancer to see through.

This mask was used for the Dance of the Conquest, which re-enacts scenes from the conquest of the Maya kingdoms of Guatemala from 1523–1530. The war between K’iche’ Maya and Spanish forces came to a close with the death of the legendary feather-adorned ruler Tecún Umán at the hands of the blond-haired conquistador Pedro de Alvarado.
