Mask (topeng) as a product of fine arts is not only used as decoration, but also as the equipment of dance and theatre in some performances.

Topeng or Mask dance is traditionally performed during ritual procession and tries to convey wisdom to the spectators, but has become more and more a theatre performance. The dance can be performed by a person depicting different characters or by several dances (sometimes with different roles).

It is believed the tradition of the mask dance has taken place for since the 16th century in Indonesia. Although there are fears the ancient art may die out, the interest for this traditional art is growing again. Like the Festival Topeng in Cirebon in recent year.
