Kurt Schmidt, a "Weltenbummler" from Germany collected about 500 masks from all over the world and disposed many of them in his 3 stories bar in Altea, Costa Blanca.
Masks have been used since antiquity for both ceremonial and practical purposes. Ritual masks: The function of the masks may be magical or religious; they may appear in rites of passage or as a make-up for a form of theatre. Equally masks may disguise a penitent or preside over important ceremonies; they may help mediate with spirits, or offer a protective role to the society who utilise their powers.
