Experimental Project:
Project Name: Ancient Mask

Project Overview: 

Ancient Use of Masks

Masks are objects that cover the face for a variety of reasons. They are used for protection, disguise, entertainment or ritual practices and are made from various materials, depending on use. The earliest use of masks was for rituals and ceremonies, and the oldest found mask is from 7000 BC. Art of making masks could be older but because of the materials used for making them (leather and wood), they did not survive to this day.

 

Oldest masks were of ritual purpose and could be found in many places of the world. They are generally similar in their overall appearance, but very different in style and way they are made and used.

 

Specifications: Using the supplied materials create a mask that supports an ancient design for a culture you made up.
