Crimson Guardian

Oni Facemask

The legendary Oni of Japanese folklore are hugely varied in appearance's but are generally portrayed as terrifying, massive ogre / orc -like creatures with horns emerging from their heads, with sharp claws , huge teeth and wild hair.

 Sometimes worn along with their Hannya 般若 mask counterparts in Noh theatre, Kabuki performances and plays the Hannya & Oni mask were frequently used during the Japanese sengoku (warring states)period.

Seen also with its influence in Japanese Samurai armour by way of the Oni / Hannya becoming a design choice for many Menpo masks (face cheek armour) among Samurai warriors of the time.

Having a half-mask (Menpo) designed to strike fear into men on the battlefield would surely be advantageous in securing a victory and also a sign of strength & prestige for the individual , for Samurai Armour was not cheap.

In modern Japan the Hannya which was originally designed to represent a "jealous & malevolent female spirit " and the Oni Masks originally representing "Evil demons" or Oni possessive spirts are now mostly used for festivals and to "Guard" or protect against said spirits.

Much like Gargoyles in the west, their function is now more so as protective Guardians, both for the household/businesses and oneself .
