Male Masks Noh Mask List
  The male masks were formed in the same manner as the female masks, not to resemble an actual face, but to symbolize the character they represent.
There were two Japanese Samurai warriors whose names were Atsumori and Yorimasa.
Both warriors met with a tragic end, and their names have been given to masks that are used in the Noh Play.
These masks are available along with others ranging from God-like, super human, and the revengeful ghost. Zeami, who created the Noh play was changing this popular art form to something to be enjoyed by the royal court and the nobility culture.
