A Raksha mask is a mask that Sri Lankans use a lot in festivals and cultural dances. Raksha means “demon” and the masks are apotropaic which means that it is intended to ward off evil. They are painted in vibrant colors, with bulging eyes and protruding tongues and they depict various types of demons. Different types of masks have different meanings. Some of these types of masks are religion, ritual, secular, exorcist and exorcist with ritual overtones. These masks also have different uses to them like healing or spiritual uses. They are made to represent different types of demons. The masks can be different shapes and sizes, but the looks of the masks depend on the ritual or dance it is used in. The 2 sides can be taken off from the middle part. I uploaded a couple of pictures from the back, so you can see how it is made. Height is 21 ¼”, width including all 3 pieces is 25 ¼”. Depth is 7”.
