Another rare piece, which represents a dancer during the “indian carnival”. This figure represents the ancient “conquistador” who dominated the Aztec people during what is called the “Spanish Conquista”.
The outfit shows the influence of the Spanish culture. This dancer is part of the carnival during the presentation of local Christian Saint Sculptures, which are shown all around the village.
In this ceremonial, this presentation is often a syncretization of the new catholic religion and the old indian one.
