Hahoe talchum is just one of dozens of styles of Korean masks and associated dances. Many different regions have their own unique forms of the art: In fact, some styles belong to a single small village. The masks range from fairly realistic to outlandish and monstrous. Some are large, exaggerated circles. Others are oval, or even triangular, with long and pointed chins. Many of the finest masks are carved from alder wood, but others are made of gourds, papier-mâché or even rice-straw. The masks are attached to a hood of black cloth, which serves to hold the mask in place, and also resembles hair. These tal are used for shamanist or religious ceremonies, dances (called talnori) and dramas (talchum) that are still performed as part of the nation’s heritage festivals and celebrations of its rich and lengthy history.
