Watch the Intricate Craft of Devil Masks Making

Run in Parita by the “Master Artisan” and Panama’s most acclaimed mask maker, Dario Lopez, this workshop is a unique opportunity to witness his masterful touch while making the masks used by ‘Diablicos Sucios’ (Dirty Devil) dancers to perform at the local religious pagan festivals and other traditional events. Feast your eyes on the varied textures and vibrant colors that make these artifacts uniquely Panamanian. Taking inspiration from the animals and the surrounding nature, these devil masks are an important part of the country’s folklore and an incredible piece of local artistry.
