This week marks Semana Santa or Holy Week for Christians across the globe. The nation of Mexico holds a number of festivities to honor this week. Some of these festivities feature characters from Jesus’s life and other local traditions. We have a few items related to Semana Santa. They are mostly masks used in festivities to imitate these characters.
These masks are part of the William Breitenbach Collection. The whole collection can be viewed on our ContentDM page:
There is even a cool Google map that lets you know the location where each mask was created.
