Catalan Festival Masks

A Pablo Picasso paper mache 'huge head' mask, known as 'Capgros' in Catalan, is displayed at the entrance of the 'El Ingenio' shop in Barcelona, Spain. 'El Ingenio' (The Ingenuity) has been making and selling paper mache giant masks and huge heads for Catalan popular festivals since 1838. The 'La Merce' festival will be held on September 24 to observe the feast day of Our Lady of Mercy, patron saint of Barcelona.
