Female Masks (Onna-kei) Noh Mask List
It is thought the Noh masks were originally from the Gigaku and Bugaku in Heian (794-1192) and Kamakura (1180-1333) during the 8th through the 14th centuries.
They are very realistic, taking their shape from the pictures and statues of Buddha. The beauty of profoundness and subtleness are lacking in these masks. Finally, during the end of the Muromachi Dynasty, these female masks were designed to portray the character of the protagonist of the Noh play.
The mask symbolizes something, which is converted to profoundness and subtly and is very different from the face of an actual woman. In one mask, one can see the feeling of joy, anger, grief, and happiness. Talent, tune and tone can shake the heart of the audience.
The effect produced there is mainly Zen Buddhism.
