    Mask Vs Masquerade

    • 1446 Words
    • 6 Pages

    African Art, twenty-five contemporary artists attempted to bridge the gap between mask and masquerade by both historically contextualizing and re-creating the part that the African mask and masquerade play today. The Helmet Mask (Gbetu) with Raffia Costume was created during the early to mid-20th century. The unidentified Gola artist utilized wood, pigment, metal, and raffia to create the work. The dimensions of the work are 93 by 48 inches, or 236.2 by 121.9 centimeters. The work was created in Grand Cape Mount or Lofa County, Liberia by a member of the Gola tribe. This tribe resides in western and northwestern Liberia and Eastern Sierra Leone. The work within the image set which inspired my selection was the Bundu Mask from the Mende peoples of the Sande Society, located in the modern-day West African forests of Sierra Leone and Liberia. The work was created during the 19th to 20th century C.E., and was created using wood, cloth, and fiber. Both of these selected works are used as masks, and were made by a member or members of African tribes which reside in both Liberia and Sierra Leone. Both works also contain the materials of wood as well. Visually, both are similar as there are long, shaggy pieces of material, representative of hair, hanging around the circumference of the base of the top part of the mask. The top part of the mask is representative of a female face. Gbetu masks characteristically consist of a bucket-shaped helmet which is fitted over the user’s head and…

    didn’t like the Protestant church is back home. When I was in England I heard about a group of people who called themselves the Puritans. They were a group who also believed that the Protestant Church was not complete and was corrupt just like the Catholics. The Puritans wanted to clean up the church and society, and believed that they could make a change within the community by modeling the right way to live life. I decided to join them, but I still didn’t like living in such a corrupt society.…

This is not always the case, however; sometimes having low expectations can be viewed as pleasant and helpful, whereas having high expectations can cause disappointment. Even William Shakespeare once said that expectations are the root of heartache. Lowering expectations can positively impact happiness by changing one’s outlook on life,…

    Many times, I have looked through the mirror, and said “I need to become more.” These words are not because of lack of confidence, but because with my background, I have learned that there is a need to love oneself to love others. I want to be the type of person people look up to, a person of action and a keeper of words. I have analyzed who I am, and how much work I need to do. “It is too late to change my past; therefore, I will strive to become a better individual by not committing the same…

    As soon as we came to this earth, we were all born equal because we were all innocent at the time.

Socialization is important to us because it helps shape one’s personality.

    Family. And uses the verse,“I am the vine, you are the branches”, from John 15:5 for the foundation of this section. He begins Chapter 15: Formed for God’s Family, by introducing the reader to Hebrews 2:10a which says “God is the One who made all things, and all things are for His glory. He wanted to have many children share His glory.” In the beginning when God created Adam and Eve God formed a plan for His people to glorify Him. The crazy thing is that we all were formed by God but we aren’t…
