It is not known who has made the first masks or even when or why, maybe it was to disguise themselves while hunting or to frighten their enemy on the battlefield.
The earliest known reference to mask use is found in a southern France cave. It is to believed to have been painted around 20,000 BC. The art depicts a human masked in deer skin and antlers.
In religious rituals they have been used to insure a good harvest or a safe hunt or to ward off evil. Some cultures believe that the person wearing a mask is transformed into the character of the mask.
The earliest dramatic use of masks that we know about was in Greece. Masked singers and dancers represented the gods, satyrs, and other mythical beings.  
Over four thousand years ago the early Chinese made terrifying and ferocious clay masks with fangs and gaping mouths which represented demons and monsters, creatures of the spirit world.
Half masks, covering the eyes and nose were used by Italian clowns in the 1500's. They are still seen at masquerade parties and costume balls.
Super heroes such as Spider-man, Zorro and Batman wore masks.
Many sports such as baseball, fencing, hockey, etc... wear protective masks.
