Description

Ifugao 

The Ifugao is a group that lives in a mountainous region of north-central Luzon, Philippines around the of town Banaue. Ifugao name means "inhabitant of the known world."In the past the Ifugao were feared head-hunters, just as other tribes in the mountainous regions of northern Luzon. The Ifugao people have an indigenous religion unique to their traditional culture, and highly significant to the preservation of their life ways and valued traditions. Ifugao arts and crafts consist of a wide variety of objects, many of which are for daily use.

The mask is everywhere. Blank and anonymous, it lingers as a constant reminder of the crisis we’re all facing.

A universal symbol of this unprecedented period, the mask is also a territory of expression, rich of a 7 000 years long history and various traditions. 

To ornate, hide, heal, dance, play, seduce or hunt, from Japan to West Africa, from Argentina to Ireland, the mask is an endless source of beauty and knowledge.

It’s also a wonderful medium for artists to take over. That's why we created The Mask Project, an International curated competition, open to the public vote which gathered  12 Jurors, 700 participants, from 150 countries and more than 40 000 votes

We're very proud of this project and are pleased to feature here the 6 Winners and  20 finalists.
