Honne & Tatemae Limited Edition Art Print & Canvas

The Hannya mask & the Menpô, the frightening samurai mask. These masks personify the dual nature of Honne and Tatemae.

The Hannya mask, with its mesmerizingly expressive features, represents the raw emotions and hidden desires of Honne. It reveals the unfiltered truth that lies within, encapsulating the turmoil and passions of the human spirit. In contrast, the Menpô, the stoic samurai mask, embodies the societal expectations and the art of Tatemae—the carefully crafted façade presented to the world.

Celebrate the multifaceted nature of human existence with this unique piece from the “Masks” Capsule Collection. Whether displayed as a print or a canvas, let the Hannya mask and the Menpô transport you into a world where masks become portals, revealing the intricate layers of our true selves.
