AFRICAN MASKS HISTORY
They are both idea and form. The artistry of african masks is self evident but, for the people who create them, they have a much deeper meaning than surface beauty. In general, the mask form is a physical mechanism to initiate transformation whereby the wearer takes on a new entity, allowing him to have influence on the spirits to whom he is appealing to or offering thanks. The Western viewer is often caught off guard by the emotions that a mask can evoke. Our intrigue can quickly be transformed to a powerful connection not often experienced in our frequently disassociated worlds. They therefore yield some notion of power which the viewer can be attracted to or repelled by. This too is despite the fact that often the viewer is studying the mask out of context and without its accompanying costume or props. Something mystical is transferred by the nature of its function. The traditional African mask is worn during celebrations, dances and festivities and ritual ceremonies commemorating social and religious events. They play a very significant spiritual and functional role in the community and often there is no distinction between social recreation and ritual celebration.
