The mask Deigan (golden eyes) takes its name from the application of gold paint (kindei) in the eyes. Gold does not only use for the eyes and also for the teeth, which means that it is a being beyond the temporal world. Deigan is the face of an attractive woman who reflects resentment and resentment towards a man who has lost love for her. It is a simple combination between demential jealousy and the struggle to contain that emotion that consumes everything. This mask has a great difficulty for disheveled hair, and the mouth for which he longs to speak, and the sad look in his eyes.
