People have incorporated Tribal Masks into their cultural ceremonies, rituals and celebrations. Some Indian and World-famous Mask- Assamese Mask, Chhau Mask, Himachali and Karnataka Metal Mask, African Mask, SriLankan Mask, Kuba Mask, Hannya Mask. Each of these creations is designed according to the particular traditions of their region. The mask was worn by men in exuberant dances strided slowly and with dignity. Accompanied by music and songs, gestures and rhythms were determined by the type and purpose of the masquerade. Some masks were intended to shock or horrify, others to astonish or to make audience’s laugh. Even the most mystifying mask as we know now had a meaning or a message to convey. A thorough knowledge of the role played by masks in the life of peoples past and present need not diminish our appreciation of them as works of art.
Artist’s View His work reveals his state of mind that focusses on the consternation and stress which help him in composition to establish layers of imagination, blended with reality, also the things around, teach him something new in many ways such as one can observe as traditional mask, puppets, Hindu deities’ character and their facial expression, etc. very clearly in his mask project.
These masks help him learn how to express oneself in front of others without any hesitation, although Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore quotes – Sohoj Kotha Jaye Na Bola Sohoj Bhabe “Easy words are not expressed easily”, which we can relate in today’s world, but these puppets very simply go against these thoughts and present themselves without any fear.
