Noh Theater began around the 14th century as a ritual offering in Japanese temples and shrines. Among sixty primary designs in Noh masks, Ko-Omote (Little Face) represents a girl in her teens, and she is the prototype for over twenty others onna-men, each varying subtly from the innocence of this mask, through which evolved into a wide range of female roles; where in the Noh Play a skilled actor can imbue an impassive expression with subtle emotion according to his movements.

Ko Omote Noh Mask

Ko Omote and Magojiro masks are considered as the ultimate technical challenge and a spiritual quest for Noh mask carvers. As shown here in this mask by Ichiko, whose traditional chisel by chisel carvings simultaneously in front-and-backside of the mask, completed with layers of kaolin primer applied to buildup the paper thin surface, only then multiple coats of white pigment was painted, and finished with a final coat of black lacquer for her hair. In view of this exquisite paper-thin wood mask, the spirit and mystique in the Noh performance is keenly observed in this Ko Omote mask.
