Product Description

“Aka Hannya (Red Hannya) Mask”

The Hannya mask is a mask used in Japanese Noh theater, representing a female serpent-demon filled with malicious jealousy and hatred. Two bull-like horns sprout from the temples and bulbous, metallic eyes lie half hidden beneath scowling brows. The gaping mouth is full of gold teeth, with upper and lower fangs that heighten her ferocity. The color of the flesh tones of the mask represents the social rank of the woman portrayed. For example a lighter complexion might indicate aristocratic status, light on top and red below indicating lower-class status, and completely red for true demons. The name hannya is a Sino-Japanese word for prajna or wisdom.

Geisha’s Blade offers you the most affordable hannya mask with the same details of high quality, hand carved masks in Japan. Made of impact-resistant, partially recycled plastic. Safe for wearing having no PVC plasticizers. Individually hand painted using acrylic lacquer. Main color is blood-red. Horns, eyes, and teeth are metallic gold. The horns are held by screws and can be removed. You can also glue the horns should you wish to.

    When Geisha’s Blade initially offered this mask, it was unpainted because the painted ones easily got Out of Stock and not sure when they will be available again. So when you paint the colorless face before, you had the choice of picking what social class you belonged to (darker or lighter shades). But being born in the Year of the Snake, I painted it red to signify a true demon that is wise and seeks out vengeance to unfair people. It would also suit well with my red Snake sword (Nagamushi Katana). If I had known this would be available again, I would have waited for it. So you guys are lucky. BILI NA KAYO (color/class of your choice) before it becomes Out of Stock!!!
