"Heida" is a depiction of the face of Ebara Heita Tanenaga, a warrior from the Kamakura period, serving as the standard for a male face. It is specifically used for the spirits of fierce warriors in plays like "Tamamura" (the spirit of Sakamoto Tamamura Maru), "Yashima" (the spirit of Minamoto no Yoshitsune), and "Ebira" (the spirit of Kajiwara Genta Kagesue). The sharply raised eyebrows and mustache exude a powerful and valiant presence, making it a remarkable mask for portraying the spirits of mature warriors.

Created in the 17th to 18th century during the Edo period

Wooden construction with coloring

Dimensions: Height 22cm, Width 13cm
