Marcos Rojas Morales: Painter

   
      
        ornament artists                
    
    

“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.

Esteban Morales: Carver

“As a Borucan artist, I feel something really special as my art flows from my imagination. And I share it with all my heart with those who admire it. I have been carving since I was 16 and was taught by both my brother Omer and our uncle German.”

Esteban enjoys envisioning and designing his own pieces and collaborates with several painters to make them really pop. Thanks to his work for the Selby Garden exhibit, last year he was able to purchase additional land to plant fruit trees and create a garden around his home. He dreams of one day learning how to paint.
