Otoko-men, or ‘men masks,’ are designated for male characters according to his social class. The picture above is the Chujo, or ‘General.’ The waki, or the individual who would listen to the shite’s story, didn’t have masks. The man was “expected to use his own face as a mask.” One important feature of the otoko are its eyes, as they “represent how old and wise the character is” (http://www.micheleyounglive.com/masks2.htm). (D. Jacobo)
