I always remember when I was a kid that I would always get scared of masks, even if the mask aren’t at all scary. I don’t remember why, but it was probably because I knew that it wasn’t the real face of the person, and no matter what the person did, the expression on the face never changed. But that’s not the case anymore, in fact, I love masks—most especially the scary ones.
Have you ever been to a masquerade party? I haven’t, but I sure want to. It’s when people get together for an event wearing masks, and people wouldn’t know their real identities until after the time when they are allowed to reveal who they are. It’s like one of those fairy tales in which people meet up and fall for each other based on their personality and not on their appearance. It’s such an amazing thing to think about, don’t you think?
If you agree with me, then look around our website for our collection of mask templates. Maybe one day, you’ll get the chance to attend one, or maybe you’ll be hosting your own masquerade party, who knows?

Masks in Ancient History
Masks are accessories worn by people on their faces. Masks are commonly used for protection, hiding one’s identity, performance props, and also ritual practices.
- The word mask has been derived from the Middle French word masque, meaning “covering to hide or guard the face,” and this word was derived from the Italian word maschera, which is also derived from the medieval Latin word masca, which means “specter” or “nightmare.”
- The earliest known evidence of the use of masks in the ancient times is by primitive people to associate the wearer with some kind of authority or any higher role in their society.
- The oldest masks discovered are held at the Musee Bible et Terre Sainte in Paris. These masks are over 9,000 years old.
- The Iroquois, a North American tribe, made use of masks for healing purposes.
- In the Himalayas, masks were used as mediators of supernatural forces.
Masks played a historical role in the development of understandings about humanity because it allows the wearer to know what it is like to take the role of someone else. Not all cultures practice using masks in their history, but most of them have.
