How Mask went from funny to serious.

Today, if you ask anyone what a mask is, they will tell you that it is what you wear on your face to protect yourself from Covid-19. But that’s just one dimension of it. Masks have a rich and varied history. Explore it with THE ENGLISH NUT.

Episode #67 Title: Why ‘mask’ means so much more: Covid-19 Diary. During the plague in Europe, centuries ago, doctors devised masks to protect themselves while treating the sick. These were scary looking contraptions that covered your entire face and had a beaklike protrusion over the nose, making the wearer look like a demonic bird.

These ‘beaks’ were filled with herbs. It was believed that breathing in their fragrance protected you from disease. Masks have not just been used for protection, but as a disguise, in performances, for entertainment and rituals. The most iconic mask of 21st century popular culture is the one from the 2005 film ‘V is for Vendetta’, based on a graphic novel form the 1980s. This mask is a version of the Guy Fawkes mask.

Guy Fawkes was a rebel who tried to blow up the British parliament in 1605. Today this mask has become a symbol of protest and resistance. The word ‘mask’ came into English in the 1530s from the French word mask. The French got it from the Italian word maschera, which came from the Latin masca, which may have come from the Arabic word maskhara meaning buffoon or clown—from which we also get the Urdu or Hindi word with a similar meaning. Professional clowns wear masks as a part of their act, hence the derivation of the English word mask from maskhara.

Ironic, isn’t it, that a word with roots in humor and entertainment is now used in such a serious context. The oldest surviving masks are around 9,000 years old. And there are artworks of masks that are 30-40,000 years old. Masks were used in Greek theater in 600BC. In the classical Noh drama of Japan from 1400AD. Masks are a living tradition in India. The Chhau dance of eastern India, which uses colorful masks, is one example. The word chhau itself is said to originate in the Sanskrit word that means mask or disguise. In America, the native Iroquois people have a tradition of using wooden masks in healing rituals. These are called ‘false face’ masks.

If you are cured of disease with their help, you become a member of the False Face Society. Do remember to wear your mask when you go out. If it gets you down, cheer yourself up with the thought that not only is the mask protecting your health, but connecting you to a rich, ancient and diverse tradition of dance, drama, disguise and rituals. I’m The English Nut. Bye for now.
