Masks

Materials such as leather, ceramic, and paper are implemented in the construction of masks, and provide various options for design and form.  Additional decorations in the form of feathers, beads, or jewels can add to the aesthetic nature of the mask. The choice of colors and patterns can reveal greater insight into the values and culture of the individuals who make it.  While physical masks can be held or worn, people also mask themselves through other methods. Cosmetic alterations such as makeup, tattoos, and face painting are notable for the transforming nature they have over one’s appearance and sense of identity.
