 Focusing on the backside of this mask, we could find Japanese letters. It is written as follows: 伎芸天 若永作. It means 若永 made this mask. And we could also judge that this mask’s model is 伎芸天 (Gigeiten). Gigeiten is a Tennyo (天女, celestial nymph) who was born from the hairline of Makeisyura Tennou (摩醯首羅天王). She was beautiful in appearance and was excellent at dancing and playing instrumental music. Since she was known to help people quickly improve their skills, she was deeply worshiped by many people involved in the arts and those who wished to improve. It is said to enhance one’s skills, protect the arts, and bring good fortune and happiness. Even if we remove the religious connotations, you might find comfort in the gentle expression on this face.
