sinopsis

From ancient times to the present day, masks and the practice of masquerading have exerted a powerful fascination among people around the world. Through their ability to conceal, reveal and transfigure, masks have become a near-universal phenomenon yet the nature, functions and meaning of these disguises are strikingly different across cultures.In ritual and religious use, as today in Africa or Oceania, mask-wearers may be thought to be possessed by -or even become- a spirit or a god. In ancient Egypt, funerary masks were intended to equip the deal with divine powers and attributes, but the masks used in Japanese Noh plays or in ancient Greek drama helped to portray character. The masks themselves are extraordinary objects made from every kind of material. Beautiful, elaborate, fierce, grotesque or elegant, they demonstrate the creative skills and aesthetics of many different periods and cultures.
