Sandae masked play

Today the sandae masked play is performed by villagers in Korea. Masks cover either the whole head or the face and are made from paper or gourds or, occasionally, are carved from wood. They are boldly painted to represent the stock characters of the play: monks, shaman, noblemen, young dancing girl, and others, staging satiric dialogue plays that hold officialdom up to ridicule.
