Mojigangas

Mojigangas are giant dancing puppets made of paper, cardboard and cloth. These dancing puppets are an essential part of fiestas throughout Mexico. It was rumoured that this tradition was brought over by the Spaniards around the 1600's. The Mojigangas were used primarily to evoke joy during important religious pilgrimage at that time.
