Product Description

 

A vejigante is a folkloric character in Puerto Rican festival celebrations. 

In the 12th century St. James the Apostle was believed to lead the Catholic militia to win a battle over the infidel Moors. St. James is the patron saint of Spain and on his saints day, when people celebrated the Victory of St. James over the Moors, the vejigante represented the Moors with whom St. James fought.

By the 17th century it was typical to see processionals in Spain in which vejigantes were demons meant to terrify people into going back to church. Hence, there are references of vejigantes in Cervantes' "Don Quixote" written in 1605. Back then, the vejigante symbolized the Devil in the battle between good and evil.

This processional in Puerto Rico has taken on a new face because of the African influence. Nowadays in Puerto Rico, the Vejigante has lost its “evil” meaning and is mostly a playful and fun carnival character.

I designed this vejigante a sa fun piece based on Puerto Rico’s folklore.
