Many works of African art refer to and derive meaning from an invisible realm beyond the material world, serving as conduits between the living and the spirits, as conveyed throughout the Cleveland Museum of Art's newest exhibition, Fragments of the Invisible. In the spirit of Halloween and MIX: Underneath, we go beneath the surface and examine the spirituality and power behind masks, particularly the Helmet Mask on view in the exhibition.

Fragments of the Invisible marks the American debut of 34 works of Central African art acquired in 2010 by the Cleveland Museum of Art from the Belgian couple René and Odette Delenne. Many of the works that make up this transformative acquisition have never before been published nor displayed, until the exhibition opens on Sunday, October 27, 2013.
