  • The concept of a mask is to allow someone to become someone else or represent something/someone else.
  • Egypt (c.3100-332 BC)

Mask Uses in Ancient Egypt
  • The ancient Egyptians placed decorated masks with features over the faces of the dead in commemoration. The funerary mask served to guide the spirit of the deceased back to it’s final resting place. The idea of covering the dead persons face with a mask was to give character and life to the individual even in death
materials in mask making
Materials in Mask-Making
  • Ancient Egyptian masks were made of cloth covered with stucco or plaster, which was then painted bright colours. Difference in social status also influenced what your mask was made out of or adorned with. For example, if you were in a position of power, silver and gold were used.

  •  Red, being the colour of power, symbolized life and victory, as well as anger and fire. Green symbolized new life, growth, and fertility, while blue symbolized creation and rebirth, and yellow symbolized the eternal, such as the qualities of the sun and gold. Yellow was the colour of Ra and of all the pharaohs, which is why the sarcophagi and funeral masks were made of gold to symbolize the everlasting and eternal pharaoh who was now a god. White was the colour of purity.
interior cultural influence on mask
Interior Cultural Influence on Mask
  • Although the use of depictions on masks is still unknown, there is much speculation. An example is one very common depiction present in many mortuary scenes that records themummification of a body by a jackal-headed being. Such representations may document the actual mummification rites performed by a jackal-disguised priest, though it may also be interpreted as commemorating that episode of the embalmment by the jackal god Anubis in the mythic account of the death and resurrection of the god of the dead, Osiris, whom the deceased wished to emulate.
