Meiji p. Japanese Mountain God Mask wi/ Glass Eyes
Please refer to our stock # O004 when inquiring.
The powerful gaze of a Kami (god) glares down over an archaic smile, giving nothing away, the eyes glittering with gold. This is a 19th century carved wood mask created in the life-like Iki-ningyo style covered in gofun and pigment complete with inlayed glass eyes and animal hair. It is 24 x 20 x 10 cm (9-1/2 x 8 x 4 inches) and is in overall fine condition, with minor losses to the pigments and hair typical of age.
