Details:The symbol of the mask has long been an object of identity and mis-identity in Mexican culture. Evidence of masks and their uses can be traced back thousands of years to the ancestors of the region’s indigenous peoples. In pre-Hispanic Mexico, masks were brought to life through the use of dance. Early societies used ceremonial dances to praise their gods, hoping to bring fertility and good weather for crops. Worshippers in pre-Hispanic Mexico venerated the four cardinal directions, sometimes known as the four winds. Each direction had a color that corresponded to it and was commonly used in masks to represent specific purposes and meanings. Among the Aztecs, black was used for North, blue for South, red for East, white for West, and yellow for the multidirectional central point.
