This is an exceptionally rare Shishi
mai (shishi dance) head and body set!
This set is genuine Shishi
mai, and seem to be from pre WWII. Heads are made of wood elaborately and body is made of cotton. Characters read 'Konpira Daigongen', and it seem to be owned by a temple.
Cotton part has tears and stains, but head part only has several small chips.
They are in very good condition.
We highly recommend this rare Shishi
