Khon masks comprise part of the costume of performers of the classical dance – drama of Thailand. The Khon performance involves singing, dancing, acting and acrobatics, and – of course – music. Stories for the drama are based exclusively on the Ramakien, the Thailand version of an Indian epic ….. of good and evil.

 

This small Bangkok mask is handcrafted – most likely in the 1930s. It was kept in pristine condition. The glass and gold metal case was added in the late 1950s by a collector in Kentucky (USA).

 

This is a rare find. The mask is made from wood, paper mache and plaster. Black stand is not included.
