                      Yes that is intentional.

                      The Hannya mask specifically has been around since mid 16th century. It's used during Japanese Noh theater to represent a female demon, angered, and rage. I have no doubts it could be used for other purposes during these plays, but that's not really in my swim lane.

                      A lot of Noh masks represent "emotion" this is why years of mask making is needed to fully understand and create facial expressions that show true emotion. 1mm differences jaws, teeth, cheeks and eyes can have different feelings.

                      My two masks are good examples of that, at quick glance that look very similar, but looking at them together and closer, you may see the difference. This was by no means intentional, these masks were rejected from my QA checks, but were good enough for me to practice Nihonga.

                      I thank you and everyone else who has taken the time to comment.
