These Luche libres are made similarly to the fantasically handmade paper mache dolls of Mexico, so fantastic to be able to arrange there limbs and create humourous scenes! Makes a fantastic coupling with our dia de los muertos dog decoration!
Wrestling traditions of Mexican culture, dating back to 1863. The Luche libre is a national sport and weekly event for many Mexicans. Its popularity is now international and is very much a part of pop culture. The de-masking is part of the mystery and magic surrounding the luchadors, they fight to keep there identity hidden, should they loose in certain contests they will have to fight mask-less in future contests!
