Relative to the previously discussed Japanese Noh Masks The Hannya are masks used to portray Female Demons. The Hannya must all have Bull Horns, ''leering'' smiles and ''frightening'' eyes (often made of shiny metal. The Hannya is a common feature in many Japanese Kabuki Plays, serving as an Antagonist. Several styles are used in these plays which are most often cautionary in nature. If The Hannya Mask is ''Light Red'', it is meant to convey a Person of less Character. Conversely, ''Dark Red'' means a true ''Evil Demon''. Finally ''White'' is a color to emphasize ''Wisdom''.
