The ko-omote (“young girl”) and the Hannya (“demon”) are both characters in the Noh Japanese plays.

The Hannya was actually a once human woman that was envious and jealous, which turned her into a demon.

The ko-omote is typically depicted in the Noh play as a young innocent beauty. Notice the in-lay of raden applied in the center of the flowers.

About the Japanese Noh Plays:

The Noh plays is the oldest of the Japanese traditional theater forms conceived in the early 14th century. Its name comes from from nō, which means talent or skill. The plays are inspired by tales from traditional literature typically involving the supernatural being transformed into a human. Actors will wear traditional costumes, carry props, and dance while singing through the Noh masks that are worn over their face to potray the emotions of the character. Common characters found on the Noh masks may include women, children, elderly, and ghosts. Even the masks itself is carefully hand-crafted to properly portray the character and allow for optimal accoustics when the actor sings into it.
