Folkloric Dancers – Bull Masks and Angel Wings
Golden winged angels and masked bulls and demons performing traditional folkloric dances, their colonial roots touched by a Guatemalan twist, is one of the various festivities that ignite the main tourist drag in the city of Antigua, Guatemala, on 31st of December.
A pruned version of the dances held in Ciudad Vieja the day after the Día de la Virgen de La Concepción, but enough to shed some light on a tiny part of local culture.
For a taster here are a few photos, but for a much wider view see my post Día de la Virgen de La Concepción – Pyrotechnics and Folkloric Dances.
