Wildly masked

The earliest recollection of the use/s of masks dates back to prehistoric times in relation to the hunting of wild animals. It is assumed that in the Early Stone Age, the hunters wore animal masks in order to disguise themselves, making the hunt more sneaky and easier.

At Watsonia Library we made animal masks for fun and entertainment, during our school holiday program Animal Planet. There was no hunting going on here, just a steady flow of artistic fervor.
