Title: ? Korean Hahoe mask
Post by: TJ on August 12, 2019, 02:23:33 PM
Found this today on a South Wales beach.
No idea but i can see the word KOREA.
Looks like a traditional Korean Hahoe mask
Any ideas.

I agree with being able to read Korea. I can't blow the image up enough though to make any sense of the Korean above it - each 'character' is actually made from a limited number of signs making a syllable - that bit is then fairly straightforward to read, if not to understand.

Thanks, would love to find out the character name of the mask . Have seen many but nothing exactly like the one i found.
Closest i have seen is the yangban nobleman mask.
