Underground Bal Masque Parties in Tehran

Shocking photos of Bal Masque parties in Tehran have been published recently. The photos you see below, are related to several parties around the city in which rich people were attending wearing costumes and a mask on their face. A masquerade ball or Bal Masque is an event which the participants attend in costume wearing a mask. Masquerade balls were a feature of the Carnival season in the 15th century, and involved increasingly elaborate allegorical Royal Entries, pageants and triumphal processions celebrating marriages and other dynastic events of late medieval court life. bal6
