|'Devil' masks used in rituals, that I found arts and crafts shop.|
Masks used in various dramatic rituals in Sri Lanka can be classified as mythological, demonic, animal-spirit and human figures. Oldest of them are animal and demonic ( or animal-cum-demonic, human-cum-demonic). The significance and designs of mythological masks are associated with iconography of the folk religions of the historical period. Source:http://www.lanka.info/shops/masks/maskUsedInRituals.htm.
The one in the FG is one of a 'Ginidella Raksha' or Fire Devil.

A great shot of the Sri Lankan dancing masks. Very colourful and a very interesting POV.
Superb Subashini !!
The colors are great and the masks are beautiful made.
The mask in front is looking at you, isn't it? ;-)
