CDR-1349: SR Set: Masks in Western Culture

Masks have served many purposes and transcend cultures near and far, old and new, to hide identity and to remember personalities, as these examples show (in chronological order). Ritual masks, allegorical depictions, comic and theatrical portrayals, carnival and finally death masks reveal much about culture, customs and status. (April 2015)
