This Lion Cub Mask was made by a Wounaan Indigenous Artisan from Panama's Darien Región. This área is famous for its dense rain forest jungles.

The Wounaan and Embera people once soley relied on the land and rivers that surrounded their huts on stilts, for their every human need. Today, deforestation, farming and outsiders encroaching on their forest existence has changed their way of life. 

Rising up to the challenges of a modern day way of life, the artisans have  turned their cultural art into art, sought after by collectors around the world.
