Lord of the Flies

The hunters are often putting on "masks" or face paint during the hunt. How does a "mask" affect a human? What type of "masks" do people wear in our civilization?

I need to look beyond the ski masks and stuff for that, obviously.

A mask is any way a person acts as if he is someone different than he truly is. We "mask" our emotions; we wear a mask so that someone thinks we are nice, or evil, or funny, or happy or sad. Suicidal people often wear the mask of a clown, appearing happy on the outside while literally dying on the inside. Another word for mask is façade and most people have different facades depending on the people they are with.
