Question 1- Transformative power of masks
In examples featured in the program, how has the transformative power of masks been used? As we seen in the video Ceremony and Society transformative power of masks are been used sometimes as a religious symbol. For example, the Balinese village uses the Barong Mask. The Barong Mask is a spirit guardian for them, so every six months in the Balinese calendar the mask is taken out and people gather. They believe that the Barong chases away sickness as well give blessings to them. The used of mask is often seen as a transformation for whoever is wearing it. Like the dancer said he prayed to the Barong for permission and if the Barong wants to be danced it will feel light. Meaning that the spirit will enter the dancer, as a sign that its present and will give protection to the community. Another example would be the Sande society, practiced in Sierra Leone and other west African groups. What it does is educate and initiate young girls into womanhood sort of speak. Masquerades were staged announcing the completion of certain stages of learning.
