In Bali we find many different types of masks with cultural significance symbolizing people, deities, demons and often unique characters. The masks are very important in passing down oral history from generation to generation and are used in mythical dance plays. They are regarded as sacred objects. It is believed that while performing, the player who wears the mask is possessed by the spirit of the character portrayed on it. The content of the Balinese dramas is derived from popular myth, historical events, and local needs (e.g. to ward off particular evil spirits and bring good fortune)
