  Mahothon and Paowanasoon

 

Thailand

Two khon masks, i.e. one of Mahothon, the other of Paowanasoon. They are yak characters from the epic Ramakien, who fight side on side in the army of Longka and are usually seen in pair. They are also rather similar in appearance, but whereas Mahothon has a green complexion (fig.), Paowanasoon is white (fig.).
