The convergence of two separate worlds is brilliantly exemplified by the Yaure masks, which serve as a captivating synthesis of these distinct realms. These masks boast elongated faces adorned with prominent lips, while their hair is typically styled in a simple fashion, divided into three sections and parted on each side. Intricate scarification marks, consisting of repetitive lines, are also intricately etched onto the forehead of Yaure masks. According to Yaure beliefs, these masks embody the powerful Yu spirit, a perilous entity capable of both causing harm to humans and ensuring their survival. By wearing these masks, the people sought to wield influence over the supernatural powers possessed by the Yu spirit. As a result, these masks were treated with the utmost delicacy and reserved exclusively for ceremonial occasions.
