Edward Gonzales, Los Matachines

Three figures from the Matachines dance: masked man with rope on left, figure with headdress and staff in center, and young girl in white fancy dress at right. Paint is thinly applied to heavy weave canvas so lots of surface texture and areas where canvas is bare. Girls has real dollar bills pinned with straight pins to her veil. In thin, blond wood frame.
