We have an incredibly rare and unusual Antique Japanese Hand Carved and Painted Wooden Snake Woman Noh Kabuki Mask with Bunny Ears. Noh masks were traditionally carved from a single piece of wood painted with natural pigments, designed to be used in comical theatre performances. The mask depicts a bunny-eared geisha's face with a snake wrapped around her head. Of particular note is the stunningly intact colors of the painted wood. The mask is unsigned (see photos), but its craftmanship, age, and authenticity are apparent. This is truly a unique, rare handmade work of art and a discerning addition to an eclectic home decor collection.

The mask is in great condition overall. There is some minor dust and considerable aging of the wood, but it remains solid and intact. There are several scratches, chips, and scuffs to the paint and wood. but has no major dents or gouges. The most notable flaw in this mask is the presence of a large crack in the center of the forehead (see photos). Please look over all photos carefully and ask any questions that you may have. What you see pictured here is what you will be receiving.
