Bugaku mask of Kitoku with seal - Plaster - Japan - mid 20th century

I offer for auction a nice polychrome Bugaku mask of Kitoku.

Kitoku is an uho-no-mai dance (Korean origin), and its saho-no-mai (Chinese origin) counterpart is the Sanju dance. Both Kitoku and Sanju are heroic solo dances of a style known as O-no-mai (“the dance of Kings”). Whilst the masks are stylistically very similar, the Sanju mask is red whereas the Kitoku mask is either green (as in this case) or peach-colored.

Made of plaster, the manufacturer seal indicates Ki no Ya Rakudou (木の屋 楽道)

Some scratches on the edges and nose, with a nice patina as pictures show.

Bugaku, a court dance and music has been mostly performed in Japanese imperial courts for over twelve hundred years. The dance is marked by its slow, precise and regal movements. The dancers wear intricate traditional Buddhist costumes, which usually include equally beautiful masks.

    Bonjour, connaissez vous l'origine de cet objet svp??
    Il manque un peu de peinture sur le nez est ce que cela ne baisse en rien la valeur du masque ?
