•About these Stickers•
The complete* collection of my "Did you Noh?" – series of Noh Mask stickers, explaining the origins of popular Noh/Kyogen masks often seen at festivals or in pop culture, Many of these mysterious masks are also used as a big part of Noh/Kyogen theatre & plays. - Some are Youkai and some are Kami - Noh masks are also considered good luck and can simply be hung on walls to soak up negative energy and bad vibes, - Oni, Tengu and Ghost masks are particularly good at scaring away baddies, While masks like Otafuku or Hyottoko would welcome in business and good fortune. – (so thats what I hope my sticker art will do for you!!) - These sticker masks are drawn by @SamKalensky (hi thats me!👋) and are available as stickers or as full size paper masks
*This listing will be updated with more masks periodically so check back sometime! :)
• About Noh masks: There are well over 250 different types of Noh mask, each is hand carved & traditionally made out of wood: Most are carved not to resemble a particular face, but are instead meant to symbolize the character which the actor in the mask is representing. – Depending on how the light hits the mask, it might display a different emotion. – so, noh is performed very slowly to bring out that feeling: Noh plays are supposed to portay a mood, rather than your traditional action-packed narrative story. - For more information about these specific masks Please also check out my Yokai zines!
