Inspired by Japanese folklore and myths; the NOH
Commonly used as an accessory in dramatic Noh performances, Noh masks have an unsettling appearance of scorn and malicious desire. Top-end Noh masks have a variety of expressions which change depending on the lighting and direction of the viewer.
Used as a means to hide motives, Noh masks are said to absorb negative energy and impure thoughts. Houses of wealth and high status are known to decorate entrance-ways or shrine rooms with Noh masks in order to prevent evil spirits.
