A couple of new masks


Just finished another couple of masks, and rather being something new they are copies of earlier ones that had been ordered. Whereas most kagura masks are made out of wood, for the past hundred years in the Iwami region they have been made out of the local paper, sekishu washi, a UNESCO listed material.


Based on the hanya mask, though with some of my own variations, they remain the most popular of my masks.
