Faces

“This mask from Sri Lanka is used in ceremonies to remove various types of afflictions, the mask and its activites helping the afflicted visualise their malaise.”

“The buck teeth and leering smile of this mask suggest a character associated with low spirits and demons. In a drama he usually represents a demon or aggresive lord. The moustache, hair and brows are made from goat’s hair and hide; the teeth are shell. Balinese. Private collection. 20th century. “
