The Hannya is a demon mask used in the Nō theater. “The Hannya mask is said to be demonic and dangerous but also sorrowful and tormented, displaying the complexity of human emotions” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannya). What is important to notice is the various ways the mask can express emotion even though it is said to be “nonexpressive.”  Its laughing expression may suggest evil but its eyes are rather troubled and lonesome showing a distressed life. (D. Jacobo)
