There are several theories on how masks came into vogue in our culture. However prolific the theories may be, the accepted theory s that they are connected with rituals and mask itself or the person wearing it mysteriously represents some power or spirit.

This catalogue depicting the photographs of those masks would not only expose us to a different world of culture and heritage but would also teach us on how masks constituted a thread of continuity as a form of cultural practice from the pre-historic past to the living present.
