Superb Shishi lion wood festival mask for the lion dance at the New Years festival in the Showa Period C.1930. The Japanese lion consists of a wooden, lacquered head called a “shishi-gashira”, literally, a lion’s head, and a characteristic body of red dyed cloth with white designs. It can be manipulated by a single person, or two people, one of whom manipulates the head. As with Chinese lions, the make of the head and designs on the body will differ from region to region, and even from school to school. The Shi-Shi-Mai, the Lion dance, is known to have the power to ward off evil spirits and summon the god of harvest and wealth, bringing prosperity. The tradition has been passed for generations everywhere in Japan. It is performed at many Shinto festivals. This mask has a mouth that opens and closes and hair on the forehead. Carved out of wood and lacquered. H:13" x W:12" . Attached cotton body is very long. Ask for shipping quote.
