Reddish-brown face with wide toothy smile: red lips and twenty teeth, ten on top and ten on bottom. Eyes compressed to mirthful slits. Hair, eyebrows and the wrinkles between them, lines under eyes, on cheeks, around mouth and on chin, drawn finely in black. Probably a comic mask for the Balinese Topeng dance drama.
