THE AFRICAN MASK STORY: African masks provide a tangible form for spirits, which are personified as human, animals, or even both. Masks serve an important role in rituals or ceremonies with varied purposes like ensuring a good harvest, addressing tribal needs in times of peace or war, or conveying spiritual presences in initiation and burial rituals. The most used material for masks is wood, although a wide variety of other elements can also be used.
