Masks are used throughout the world to represent the spirit forces, seen and unseen that control humans. African masks are the best known with an endless variety for planting, harvesting, rain, fertility, wisdom, rites of passage, homage and divining. Hudok masked dancers in Borneo, carnival masks from Peru, and wayang topeng masks of Java all are used in important rituals.
