Onibaba "Kage Edition"

A design inspired by the 1964 Japanese film Onibaba. Set during the 14th century amidst a Civil War, The fable tells of two women who kill soldiers to rob them of their possessions. The oldest woman, stricken with jealousy over her daughter-in-law's recent relationship, dons a Hannya mask from a Samurai she recently lured to his death. She uses the mask to scare the young girl and stop her from meeting with her lover. The mask is impossible to remove and the younger woman, believing the older woman has turned into a demon, runs from her, leaping to her death.
