Viewing Noh Masks

On the trip to Japan in 1997, our group had the immense gift 
of a private viewing of Noh masks belonging to a company 
that had been presenting Noh theatre for many generations.
One at a time each mask was taken out of protective wrappings 
and presented to our view. I thought Kiyoko looked very pretty
in this blue silk and pearls, so I took her picture as well as
many fine ones of the masks. jhh
