Made of wood, metal, clay, plaster papier mâché and so many other materials, masks have been used by humanity to transform themselves from very ancient times. Traditional societies have used masks to decorate, disguise, conceal and transfigure themselves into strange mythological creatures, gods, goddesses, villains and heroes. Once donned, a mask serves as a stage itself, allowing the performer to subsume his identity to the chosen role. Masks signify mystery, glamour and the multiplicity of identities that await within us all. When you acquire a mask you acquire a character.
