In modern Japan, Hannya masks are used for good luck and to ward off evil spirits. The meaning behind the mask can represent jealousy, rage, or sadness. Perhaps wearing the mask in whatever form leans towards the symbol of wisdom and luck, warding off evil or negative emotions. The Hannya Mask is one of the most iconic Noh masks used in Japanese traditional theater. It depicts an envious female demon with two devil horns, piercing metallic eyes, and leering teeth. It is not a symbol or an abstraction of jealousy; it is a physical transformation of a jealous woman or of a spirit that has momentarily left the body and taken another form.
