Hannya Sakura Half sleeve design by Joe

Really aiming to complete the whole list of Asian creature stories right from A-Z. I find it fascinating that within the edo period so much was drawn and written about legends, myths and creatures to such detail. The Hannya (般若) mask is a mask used in Noh theater, representing a jealous female demon. It possesses two sharp bull-like horns, metallic eyes, and a leering mouth.
