Masks : faces of culture by John W Nunley ( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Transporting readers across centuries and continents, this volume presents masks from all over the world. 200 colorplates provide such stunning and diverse examples as an intricately carved coronation mask from Cameroon; an exquisite gold Egyptian mummy mask; colorful Mexican Day of the Dead masks; and breathtaking Noh theater masks from Japan." "Accompanying the photographs are essays tracing the functions of masks throughout history, written by scholars in the fields of art history, anthropology, decorative arts and design, and theater. John Nunley examines cross-cultural themes in his discussion of the origins of masks and their use in rituals. He also analyzes the phenomenon of men who "cross-dress" in masquerade, because women are not allowed to wear masks in many societies." "John Emigh and Lesley K. Ferris explore the role of masks in theater, whose roots lie in ritual performance. Cara McCarty looks at the ways in which masks are featured in the medium of film as well. But these artistic examples are not the only masks found in industrial societies. McCarty also discusses the proliferation of masks for physical protection, in areas such as military combat, sports competitions, and space exploration."--Jacket
