  Totsakan (green khon mask)

 

Thailand

A khon mask of Totsakan (fig.) portrayed with a green complexion. Typically, he is wearing a golden chadah-like crown (fig.) decorated with several green yak-faces, i.e. besides the main yak-face of the mask. On the back-side of the base level of the chadah are three smaller faces, whilst there are another four faces on the middle of the chadah's peak, which are positioned back-to-back, as if one for every direction of the compass. In addition, there is a human-like face at the top, which only faces forward and represents the face of Phra Phrom.
