Pastora Ayala's little shop in this north coast town is hard to miss. It is painted bright yellow, red and blue. Two grotesque horned masks made of coconut husks with fangs and long red tongues hang from the shop's porch posts. The 79-year-old shopkeeper is the widow of Castor Ayala, the famed mask maker of Loiza Aldea who died in 1980.
