Most masks are burned after the closing ceremony, which makes the mask we will be analyzing unique. Information on these masks are severely limited, but with the help of chemical analysis, our goal is to analyze the mask in our possession and study materials used to create it using chemical analysis including Infrared Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry.
