Bolivian Carnival Costumes

At the Musee du Quay Branly Bill and I were most impressed by these contemporary Andean carnival costumes from Bolivia.
They seem to mix Native and Christian religious imagery.
Imagine these animated by the festival participants .
Devils and demons seem to be popular in all cultures.
We've never seen any costumes like these. They combine a mix of primordial power and play.
