Miniature heads modeling the different masks used in Noh theatre. I love the ‘Hannya’, the noh mask of a grinning, horned demoness (representing a woman’s rage and jealousy). The picture doesn’t do it justice. Even though it was smaller than my palm, it was creepy. I can’t imagine a life sized mask used in the theatre. I really want to see a Noh play someday. #japan #gero #gasshoumura #noh #theatre #culture #learnsomething #mask #下呂市 #下呂温泉 #合掌村 #能 #能面 #般若面 #文化 (at 下呂温泉 合掌村)
