To visualise the invisible. To provide a way of expression to demons, spirits of the deceased, mythic creatures or historic figures - this is the main role of masks.

Finds from graves of thousands of years, cliff paintings prove that masks have been there at the beginning of the existence of humanity. Masks are made of anything found in nature, e.g. animal or even human parts. They are used at important social and personal events like anniversaries, changes of seasons, agricultural cycles, and rites of passages. They sometimes solve social conflicts, but are often used for healing by witches. They can punish, teach and entertain. Masks have been researched thousands of times but they have still kept some of their secrets.

The material of the exhibition selected from the collection of the Ethnographic Museum in Budapest consists of over one-hundred masks. Some will shiver you, some are intellectual or even aesthetic but they all undisclosed some kind of secret.
