Indigenous Boruca Crafts of Costa Rica

Indigenous Boruca Brunca Crafts and Masks of Costa Rica

The below masks were carved by a Costa Rican indigenous tribe called the Boruca or the Brunca. They inhabit the southern part of Costa Rica and many people of their communities live off of carving masks, painting, and making traditional crafts to be sold to tourists to Costa Rica.
