This mask is used for the ghost of a dead military commander with a strong grudge. It is considered a masterpiece because it describes both the dignity and the fire of the heart, together with its elegant and beautiful color, without traces of blood or the sweaty smell of war. He has oblique eyes with bright metal rings mounted, which means that the character has a strong will and feels a deep grudge against this world. The eyebrows and mustache painted in a unique way express their power and their energy.
