俊寛 | Shunkan

俊寛
Shunkan was the priest in the sixteenth century. He was sent into exile with other two men as conspirators on a barren island. Although the two men were pardoned to go back, Shunkan was left alone and died there. This mask has a completely depressed and worn-out look on it. It just refers his own life. This mask is used only in the Noh play “Shunkan”.
