This is a mask used in Noh theater.
There are various kinds of masks for the role of an old man, showing subtle differences in beard and mustache, either hand-painted or using real hair, and in the arrangement of teeth. The "Kojo" mask is worn by the actor portraying the old man in the first part of "Takasago" and in other Noh plays. The mask, embodying dignity and divinity, foreshadows the old man's appearance in the second part as a god.
