This was a drawing my best friend did a couple of years back…still on the list to get it inked:
The Hannya mask is an integrating part of the Japanese folklore, used in many noh and kyōgen Japanese plays. It portrays the souls of women who have become demons due to obsession or jealousy and is believed to drive evil spirits away…
” - Who are you?
- Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
- Well I can see that.
- Of course you can. I’m not questioning your powers of observation; I’m merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is”
