Description

The Brotherhood of the Blessed Sacrament of the Dancing Devils of Yare, The masks are pieces made of plastic, paper and newspaper among others, of various sizes and different shapes, reflect with bright and fluorescent colors the image of a demon, with deep eyes and pronounced chunks.

 MEANING OF THE CACHOS:

The foreman is the one with four bits of the same size.

The second foreman has three chunks also of the same size.

The third foreman has three chins, but the center one a little smaller.

The devils, whose masks have only two horns. (The one I am sending you)

 These are used by promisers, cashiers, foremen and muleteers of the brotherhoods to honor the Blessed Sacrament, to thank the favors and miracles granted and to demonstrate once again, to the rhythm of the drum and the maracas, that good will surpass forever the forces of evil.
