DESIGN FOR THE ARTS
Masks will not make you invisible. They neither hide, nor disguise, nor mask. The gods that founded our earthly life in Africa send masks to transmit energy to their children. The mask with bull’s horns gives strength, the one featuring antelope antlers offers speed, the one with an elephant’s trunk teaches resistance, the one that has wings makes you fly. Whenever a mask breaks, the mask-maker carves a new one. The mask’s spirit will not be left homeless, and the people will not be left helpless.
