Wood sculpture, 'Diablada' (Peru)

A dancer wearing a colorful costume and a devilish mask inspires John Barrow to create this extraordinary sculpture. Known as diablada, this dance combines pre-Hispanic and catholic elements and it's performed throughout the Andean region to exemplify the victorious battle of good over evil. Barrow crafts the sculpture with ishpingo wood, creating the illusion of fragmented pieces that together convey dynamic sense of movement.
