Masks are important elements in the art of many peoples, along with human figures, often highly stylized. There are a vast variety of styles, often varying within the same context of origin depending on the use of the object, but wide regional trends are apparent. African masks were an influence on European Modernist art, which was inspired by their lack of concern for naturalistic depiction.
