“Mahakola. A medicine mask, used by a magician when treating a disease of unknown cause. Sri Lanka”

“This is a fortune-seeking mask of the Baek Tribe in Yunnansheng, China. The mask is hung in the house for inviting fortunes.”

Own photos (hence glass reflections) from the great Hahoe Mask Museum in South Korea. There’s a korean only catalogue of their collection here.
