Fearsome Japanese wooden MASK of HANNIYA, or "female accumulated anger expressed," with horns and bulging eyes and cheeks, jutting jaw and long teeth is frightening! The underlying color of paint is a dark purple with whitish eyes and teeth! Her hair is pulled into a twist in the center of her forehead. There is some damage to the mask overall, with loss of paint on nose, cheeks,and horns but in spite of these chips and dents, this mask makes a strong impression! Height is 13 inches or 34.3 cms and the width is 6 inches or 15.2 cms. Circa: early 20th Century.
