Making masks are beautiful adaptations that can be defined in the form of faces. It is worn on the face to reflect any subject or person it contains. It kind of amplifies the expression in a theatrical way. It can also be used for concealment. The region of imagination in the brain is called the prefrontal cortex. There are very close relationships between the mask and the prefrontal cortex. The mask culture, whose origins go very deep for human beings, witnessed unique examples for the Anatolian geography. It is known to be used in religious rituals as well as ceremonies based on the strengthening of depiction on a subject. Of course, masks stand out in the way they reflect various expressions. The boy who wears a Tarzan mask is Tarzan in his game now. Masks are colorful icons. Within this scope, The Masque Museum in Izmir is one of the few cultural places to be found.
