The Hannya mask is used in many noh and ky?gen Japanese plays, as well as in Shinto ritual kagura dances. 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!
