Intended as a complement to his previous Kabuki and Bunraku books, this newest work from Hiroshi Watanabe documents the Noh masks of the Naito Clan of southern Japan, some of which are more than 300 years old. These masks are intended to convey the mood and character of the part played by a performer in an extremely stylized dramaturgical form dating back to the feudal period.
