Mexican Mask of the Year -- Wall of Fame ( formerly Mexican Mask of the Month )
is Vernon Kostohryz' selection for the best mask selected each month from his site on Mexican ceremonial dance masks.
This site lists masks collected and chosen by me on a monthly basis for a Mexican mask wall of fame. The list was begun in 2005.

After a few years, and fewer and less productive trips to my source of quality masks, I now select only one mask at the end of each year.

Finally, after a decade of maintaining the list, on 1 January 2015 I ceased to add additional masks and renamed the site Mexican Masks of the Decade (2005-2014) Wall of Fame.                                                                                      .
