Noh Mask, Japan Featured Japanese Chin Print

Noh Mask, Japan

Carved wooden Noh mask painted with a white face, red lips, black hair, teeth, moustache and small beard. Noh is a Japanese theatrical art form, where some of the actors wear masks that represent certain characters; either humans, demons, ghosts or spirits. Noh mask makers are highly skilled. Each mask is carved from a single piece of wood with an intentionally neutral expression. It is up to the performer to imbue the mask with emotion. One of the techniques used is to slightly tilt the mask up or down. Tilting upwards creates the appearance of smiling or laughing. Tilting downwards produces a slight frown and can express sadness or crying. This allows the performer is able to express a wide range of emotions. This Noh mask is small, but the mask is not made to cover the entire face. In fact, it is thought best if some part of the chin and/or jowls of the actor are on show
