The once unique and striking masks are too common to impress anyone nowadays. A more exotic choice would be Nuo Masks from China. Deep in the rare traveled paths of Southwest China, Guizhou province, a few villages still preserves their culture dating back over a thousand years ago. They still perform China’s oldest shamanic ritual dance, the Nuo Dance. The Mask is the soul of Nuo Drama. The wooden mask also has religious implications; as the symbol and medium of a spirit, masks are governed by strict rules.

The ancient style masks are carved with one piece of wood, only has a protective layer of paint to protect the mask. You can still see the wood texture. The Di drama (a newer branch of the nuo drama as you saw in the video) ,dating back to Ming Dynasty (1300 AD), performs using very brightly painted masks.
