Masks of shame are used to punish the wearer either by signalling their
humiliation or causing direct suffering:
A "shameful" mask (Schandmaske in German)
is devised for public humiliation; a popular reduced form are
donkey ears for a bad pupil or student
Particularly uncomfortable types, such as an iron mask, for example the Scold's bridle,
are fit as devices for torture or corporal punishment
Masks were used to alienate and silence prisoners in Australian jails in the late 19th century.
They were made of white cloth and covered the face, leaving only the eyes visible.
The scold’s mask, or "Mask of Shame", was widely used in the 17th Century and into the 18th Century as a form of punishment to ridicule perpetrators of relatively minor crimes. Such crimes included blasphemy, gluttony, piggish behavior, gossip, being a nagging wife, and other forms of socially unacceptable behavior. Generally no two are alike and each exhibits features which indicate the type of offense committed. For example, masks with long tongues indicate the person was a gossip, nag, or committed some other form of verbal offense. Big ears indicated a busy-body who liked to eavesdrop. A large pig nose, such as that found on this example, indicated the person was guilty of piggish behavior. Some mask styles were intended for women, while others were for men.
