Master maskmaker Manuel Horta of Tocuaro, Mexico, models a 'Christmas demon' mask worn during a traditional dance that acts out a struggle between angels trying to help, and devils trying to hinder, shepherds seeking the baby Jesus. This region of Mexico is known as a center of artisanry, with towns in the region specializing in different crafts.
