Mini Noh Mask ― Tengu

The Tengu are legendary creatures found in Japanese folk lore and religion. Considered to be a type of Shinto god or supernatural creature (yōkai) they were long held in Buddhism to be demonic, often a harbinger of war and destruction. Time has softened their image, however, and they are now seen as protectors, albeit dangerous, spirits of the mountains and forests. They are distinguished by their unusally long noses, which is characteristic of when they were first thought to take the form of birds of prey.
