Devils of Luzón.
Guadalajara . Spain.

“Luzon’s devils” is a tradition transmitted from generation to generation, with  possible Celtic-medieval origin  and declared Activity of Provincial Interest.

Men, women and children wear devil’s costumes with big cowbells (called “tricks and canyons”) and animal’s antlers, painting their bodies with a paste made of soot and oil and placing raw potatoes on their mouth like big tooth.
