diablico sucioI bought this awesome Diablico Sucio mask at the Panamanian Artisan Fair at Atlapa a few months ago.  Diablicos Sucios translates to “Dirty Devils” and are used in a dance during the Corpus Christi festival in Chitré, Panam¡.  The dance represents the battle between devils and an angel for the soul of a mortal.

I had always wanted one but never really saw them at any of the artisan shops. So when I came across this one for $55 I had to get it. It’s been sitting in my apartment ever since I got it and I finally got around to hanging it up last weekend. Someone told me it’s bad luck to have a Diablico Sucio mask in the house, but I think it looks amazing and definitely adds something unique to my apartment.

What do you all think of it?

Experience Panama


I'm from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
