A mask-headdress which is constructed in two different facial expressions: the front of the mask is painted with green, yellow, white and red colours and open red lips which shows teeth. The back of the mask has similar colours as the front, with a large yellow line running from the top of the head to the mouth, a white triangle under the chin and some green hair which is taped on the inside of the mask.
