Thousands of masked "Obama’s" are expected to take to the streets during the dozens of carnival parades in late February.
In legendary mask factory Condal, which has been one of the country's main manufacturers since 1959, thousands of masks of the American president-elect are already being produced.
Condal, which was created by late sculptor Armando Valles, has been a hit in the past with masks of Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden and late Iraqi president Saddam Hussein among others.
The factory has sold and shipped nearly seven-thousand masks to stores throughout brazil and abroad.
About half of brazil's 190 million people are black and many were heartened by Obama’s election, hoping it might prompt racial advancement in the south American country.
