"Full appreciation of a mask's mystic power can only come through experiencing the carved image in its proper context -- by firelight, on a costumed dancer circling the central hearth of a plank house. To witness the dramatic and characteristic movements of the bird or animal portrayed and to hear the pounding of drums and the chanting of songs is to sense the power of the mask and feel the hearthbeat of the great culture" (Stewart 1984: 107). - Cedar
