Noh Masks

I had the good fortune to be invited by a friend to a gallery showing of a collection of Noh theatre masks.  The masks were produced by a school teacher; who started carving when he had retired from teaching; and students to whom he had taught the carving of Noh masks.  The craftsmanship and artistry was truly astonishing, an incredible amount of emotion is expressed in the masks.
