Numina: "An indwelling intelligence or power felt in a particular place, or in the whole world...... The origins of the Roman gods may be the sense of numinous presences underlying all the processes of the natural world."

Making a mask can be a way to find a face for what is sensed, elemental, invisible, and sacred…..

Creating Story and Ritual is giving them a voice

In traditional cultures masks are power objects, tools for the Gods to be embodied. To bless, speak, even prophecy.

Wearing a Sacred Mask is invocation, and requires psychic preparation. Care is taken to devoke as well.

"When you create within a sacred paradigm you find you are communicating with what is within you - but also has a greater source somewhere else. You collaborate with something timeless.” Elizabeth Fuller, Actress, Playright THE INDEPENDENT EYE

Each time a mask is worn by a new person a new dance is discovered…..by a community, a new story is told.
