    Emilio Granda Obando: Carver

    “Carving is my passion. It is a way of life for me. I have been carving Boruca masks since 2009, when I started studying under my uncle, German. Now, for traditional festivals, I help many young people in my community with their masks.”

    Today, Emilio proudly creates his masks at Taller Brún̈crin̈and has spent many years refining his art. He loves sharing his art when it’s complete and feels it’s immensely important to always remember and teach old traditions and rituals. He has hopes to one day travel to Peru and visit Machu Picchu to see other beautiful landscapes.

    Marcos Rojas Morales: Painter

    “Creating these masks allows me to discover myself--and my culture. I was fortunate to study mask making under Don Ismael, the great teacher. Eventually, in the mid-1990s after seeing how the new colorful masks grew in popularity, I taught myself how to paint.”  

    Marcos is a master Borucan artist, equipped with a bold imagination, years of carving experience, and exceptional painting skills. He is also an ambassador for Boruca, exhibiting his work throughout Costa Rica and actively promoting his tribe’s cultural heritage. Together with his brothers, he dreams of building an eco-lodge to help generate more tourism for his village.
