It represents a girl of fifteen or sixteen, the youngest woman represented by masks, with purity, beauty and virginity. Ko-omote literally means small face. "Ko" means tenderness, youth and beauty. "Omote" means face. The mask shows the beautiful face of a young woman whose nature is calm and serene. The face reflects Heian's classic beauty: he shaves his eyebrows, arranges his hair and places his teeth, and his teeth blacken. This face shows a woman coming of age, idealizes the ingenuity of youth.
