About This Group

Masks appear in many dramatic and humorous forms in history books, cultural traditions and celebrations all over the world. Even Ned Kelly, Australia’s most famous bushranger wore a mask!

Behind the Mask is a online gallery that showcases high quality works on the subject of masks. From the primitive tribal masks to the colourful carnevale masks and everything in between.

Works can be photographs of actual masks or artworks that contain a visual representation of a mask. Writing, especially poetry on the subject of the masks people wear is also highly valued by this group.

Please be sure that all submissions are clearly on the topic of masks. General journal entries and non mask related visual works will be removed without fuss or fanfare.

Thank you for making this a group we can all be proud of.
