The work of Juan Horta Castillo consists of vivacious and boldly imaginative hand carved masks, painted in vibrant colors with high gloss automotive enamels. His works are part of a long tradition of Mexican mask making, influenced by pre-Columbian culture and the iconography of modern Catholicism. Horta is considered to be one of the finest traditional mask makers in Mexico. His works range from simple human and animal forms, to complex compositions that combine multiple subjects into stunning works of art. Devils, snakes, cats, lizards and skeletons are common elements in his work. Horta masks come in a number of sizes, from full size functional masks, to miniatures created for decorative display. His full-sized masks are used in dances and ceremonies in the Lake Patzquaro region of Michoacán.
