Topic “Masks”

Topeng Dalem (Arsa Wijaya)

topeng_dalem

The handsome Dalem (meaning Raja or King) usually appears fourth in the introductory dances to the Topeng, then reemerges as a character in the main story... It represents the qualities desirable in a ruler: intelligence, nobility, and a forceful, positive disposition. (source "Balinese Masks" by Judy Slattum)

Made by I Wayan Tangguh. I use this mask for performance.

Topeng Keras

topeng_keras

The first mask revealed in the series of introductory dances (penglembar) that precede the story of the Topeng is usually that of the Patih Manis or Prime Minister. (source "Balinese Masks" by Judy Slattum)

In my experience both this mask and another rougher variation are referred as Topeng Keras. This mask was made by I Ketut Kodi and I Wayan Tangguh. I use this mask for performance.

Jauk Manis

jauk_manis

The Jauk is from the Sandaran performance, and the forces of the left, or low spirits, are strongly manifested in his nature. In a drama he represents menacing giants, demons in their destructive mode, or antagonistic kings. (source "Balinese Masks" by Judy Slattum)

I carved this mask mixing Balinese style with Japanese materials and paints.

Mikatsuki

Mikatsuki

Traditionally done nohmen. Made with hinoki.

Bondres Pedanda

Bondres Pedanda

Another mash-up of techniques. This mask was carved in the Balinese tradition (actually by Pk. Kebes of Batuan) but I finished it with Noh-men painting technique. The center jewel was also done using electroplating 24k gold rather than gold-like paint.

Kobeshimi

Kobeshimi

A noh mask representing a demon from hell who dances a fierce dance. A smaller version of oobeshimi, the compressed scale of its features creates a truly frightening and intense aura. A sharp glare emanates from the protruding, metallic gold eyeballs. The mouth is clamped firmly together and the ends of the mouth curl downward without a hint of the playfulness seen in the oobeshimi. Kobeshimi's dark red color also lends the mask power. source external link

Ishiojou

I made this a while ago but never got around to posting it.

Topeng Telek

Topeng Telek

Made this from a photo in the book Balinese Masks. I used hinoki wood and Japanese paints.
