THE USE OF MASKS AND THEIR IMPORTANCE IN DANCE AND RITUALS
The origin of masks and their use in every popular culture is very ancient and is most often a significant part of a traditional costume associated with a ceremony or ritual that has been an important tradition to the community as a whole or to a particular group within the tribe or community of people. These traditions and the associated activities have been ardently passed on to the later generations, preserved in their purest forms and followed by these generations till the present day.Masks form the source to conceal one’s identity, to transform oneself into a different individual, to transcend himself from the ordinary individual that he is in the society, to gain importance in a community during special occasions and the like.
