This vejigante pin is made by a Puerto Rican artisan and is made of wood and is hand-painted. Each one is unique! The Vejigante (Vay-he-GAHN-tay) is a fantastic, colorful character introduced into carnival celebrations in Puerto Rico hundreds of years ago. He is a classic example of the blending of African, Spanish, and Caribbean influences in Puerto Rican culture. During the carnival celebrations in Loiza, Aldea and Ponce, the Vejigantes roam the streets in groups and chase children with their “vejigas.” The use of masks for social and religious ceremonies in Puerto Rico goes back to the late 17th century when techniques and materials such as paper-machie were adopted from Asia. Comes on a description card about the vejigante.
