The Hannya mask is used in many noh and ky?gen Japanese plays, as well as in Shinto ritual kagura dances.[5] The Hannya mask portrays the souls of women who have become demons due to obsession or jealousy. Hello My newest mask! Oldest dated Hannya mask is 1558! A white mask is a rich aristocratic woman, a red or dark is a poor woman! Mask of woman looks scary straight on! BUT tilted down a bit she is sorrowful and crying! HELLO True with women!! Women are scary! But can be gentle and special!! Thanks for looking! toranohcat!
