Billed as "the oldest masks in the world," a creepy collection of 9,000-year-old stone faces is now display in Israel.

With stilted smiles and large eyeholes, the artifacts are thought to have represented the spirits of dead ancestors and may have been worn during Stone Age ceremonies and rituals, researchers say.

Jason Voorhees has got nothing on whoever must have worn these.
