Ancient Kabuki Tengu decorative mask-long nose goblin Japanese theater Mask on a wooden board.

The character represented in this mask is Tengu, a half man, half bird demon creature, living in the woods, a part of the Japanese folklore Kabuki theater. It is the perfect gift for mask collectors or Japanese culture fans.

A beautiful handcrafted item from the Showa era. The mask is made from ceramic and it was handpainted by the artist. It stands on a wooden board easy to hang with its string.

The Tengû is a legendary Japanese creature, considered a Shinto god or a Japanese yokai. Represented with both human attributes and raptors, sometimes a large threatening bird, sometimes deformed human beings; what makes it recognizable among all is its abnormally long nose, an attribute well installed in the collective imagination.

The tengû was at the time considered a harbinger of wars and disruptors. Although from now on he is considered a protector, he remains a dangerous god of mountains and forests as a Shinto deity, with supernatural powers. Kabuki ( 歌舞伎 ) is a classical Japanese dance drama. Kabuki theatre is known for the stylization of its drama and for the elaborate make-up worn by some of its performers.

The history of kabuki began in 1603 when Izumo no Okuni, possibly a Miko of Izumo Taisha, began performing a new style of dance drama in the dry riverbeds of Kyoto. It is a vintage and old item in a good condition. Small scratches and dirt.

The mask has no cracks or lacks.

Dimensions (approx):

The wooden board : 25 * 9.8 *0.2cm (9.9*3.8*0.1 inch)

The mask: 8.2 * 6.5cm (3.2*2.5inch)

I'm happy to answer any questions. I will send it well packed with a tracking number (DHL Express shipping). 

🎁 All items are wrapped with a beautiful Japanese fabric at no extra cost.
