Isaias Alejandro Morales Delgado: Handmade Wearable Mask – Muerte Florida (Flowery Death)
- Collector Price
We are fortunate to have several new pieces in stock and ready to ship from premier paper artist Izzy Morales. We have sold his masks very well as they are great for decoration but are also made to be worn. This is a utilitarian and decorative mask, used mainly in the pre-Hispanic subculture of the Day of the Dead. On this day at midnight, it is customary to perform a “dance” in front of the altar of the deceased, followed by a vigil until dawn. The rest of the year the mask is placed inside the house, preferably facing the main entrance.
Izzy Morales from Guanajuato is an amazing talent in the field of traditional paper alebrijes and he has developed a wild imaginative modern style all his own. He has been working with paper art since he was 6 years old. Now in his early thirties, he competes in national competitions with his award-winning work. These pieces are highly labor-intensive and he works exclusively on one of kind fine art wonders rather than taking a mass-produced commercial approach. It has paid off for him and he has developed into a well-respected artist nationally..
