Traditional Wooden Japanese Matsuomyoujin Mask. , the God of brewing and sake, appears in a famous Japanese legend where he helps Susanoo no Mikoto, the God of sea and storms, slay two giant snakes. This story is performed in a Kagura (Japanese play). Susanoo no Mikoto was told by Ashinazuchi and Tenazuchi (Shinto deities) that two giant snakes ate two of their daughters and only had one left to live. Susanoonomikoto suggested that if they let her be his wife, he'll help them by saving their daughter.
He called Matsuomyoujin, the God of sake/brewing, to make sake, which the snakes became drunk on, and making it was easy for Susanoonomikoto to kill them. Please see pictures for sizing. We use a tennis ball for customers to gauge the size of the items.
