  • A mask is mysterious as it is sacred. In most cultures, a mask is worn to intimidate a rival tribe during clan wars or, on the lighter side, a mask makes a traditional wedding more celebratory. In Africa, masks represent animals and ancestors, and wearing one, they believe, turns a tribal warrior or leader into an invincible force to reckon with. Probably thousands of masks have been forgotten about, but some surface to the modern era and are now part of exhibits around the world.
