The relevance of tribal masks?

Masks portray the various moods that get embossed on our faces as reflections of the various emotions of mind that one goes through from time to time – A myriad of human expressions and feelings, be it affections, joy, happiness, love, anger, hate, fury, and sorrow.

In olden days, masks of gods and goddesses such as Siva (Shiva deity) and Shakti (three-eyed Durga deity) were considered extremely powerful. A very common use of these masks is found in the mask dances in which narrative plays are staged in which Goddess Durga (or any of her forms of Shakti) kills the evil demon. Therefore, such traditional or tribal masks are often hung at the door to keep the evil spirits at bay.
