The wooden masks are traditional objects of worship and devotion. The craft of Gomira mask-making, in its pristine, catered to the needs of the dancers and any villager wishing to give a mask as an offering to the village deity. Most Gomira masks is a composite of a principal character surrounded by the subsidiary characters, both of which always have a mythical link between them. During the last few decades, the masks have evolved into a coveted collectors’ item.
