Description

HYOTTOKO skin color no skin mask
Made in japan
Hyottoko (火 男) seems to have been a legendary character in the past and is now available in the form of a mask (see the list of masks in Japanese theater). Some masks have eyes of different sizes. The character often wears a white scarf with blue dots around the face. The mouth is askew with two red dots.
The origin of the name comes from hi (火, "fire") and otoko (男, "man") because the character blows fire with a pipe. Local dialects transformed the name into Hyottoko.
