More Shaman’s Masks

More masks from the Rubin Museum “Power of Masks” exhibit.

The shaman’s masks I sketched indeed appeared to be very powerful to me.  Shamanism is humans’ oldest and most widespread method of healing, appearing for at least 20,000 years in cultures all over the world.  Shamans serve as intermediaries between man and the spirit world, mending the soul to mend the body.  Masks are an important part of the ritual, identifying the shaman and helping to facilitate communication.
