Dominican Republic’s Tradition of Mask Making

From Great Big Story.

For one month every year, Carnival floods the streets of the Dominican Republic with wild colors, bold costumes and incredibly intricate masks. In Santiago, which hosts one of the island’s most colorful parties, Humberto Lopez is *the* mask maker to go to. He started crafting at the age of 12, became a professional at 16 and will forever be proud to create masks that celebrate Dominican culture.
