  production of khon masks

 

Thailand

The production of khon masks has become an art form in its own right, resulting in the production of detailed miniature masks, that are produced solely for collecting (fig.).

 

The masks are made of wood and papier-mâché, which includes sah-paper, khoi-paper, and paper made from straw.
