A mask

Slow mornings

For the past several years, I've had a slight obsession with hannya masks from Noh dramas. Completely disregarding the fact that the character represents jealous women, there's something sinister yet undeniably cool about the mask - the snarl, horns, angular features, and hateful eyes are badass, for lack of a better word. So when I stumbled upon a relatively inexpensive one in Kyoto, I jumped at the chance to obtain it.

Story aside, I'd much rather spend my time taking odd pictures than killing my braincells on the internet. So here ya go.
