Cigarron de Verin from Spain

Wonderful postcard from Spain showing Cigarron de Verin. Cigarronis the main character of carnival. The weight of this costume is about 25 kg. Traditionally the costume is passed from parents to their sons.

The mask of the character is made of wood. It is very typical for Verin, a town in the northwest of Spain in Galicia region.

Thank you very much, Roberto, for a beautiful postcard and very good explanations!
