Japanese Noh Actor Mixed Metal Sculpture

An impressive Japanese Noh actor comes to life in this exceptional mixed metal sculpture. With arms outstretched in a dramatic stance, the performer holds a removable Japanese Noh fan in one hand. The figure wears a traditional Noh performance mask, which removes to reveal the actor’s face underneath. The actor’s robes exhibit exquisite detail and dimension in richly patinated bronze and silver.

Noh theater is a traditional form of Japanese dance-drama that has been performed as early as the 14th century. Actors grace the stage outfitted in traditional Japanese robes and masks stylized in beautiful detail. Fans are a common prop in Noh performance, strategically used to represent an object within a scene or to add eloquence during a dance.
