Description Faceless Ghosts - this one is a little creepy! A few months back I visited Japan (had an awesome time!) and it really left an indelible mark on me, especially my creative side. They have a fascinating history of beliefs, stories, mythologies - many involving spirits, yokai, bakemono, and ghosts! There is creature called a Noppera-b (faceless ghost) who is sometimes depicted as using Japanese 'Noh Masks' to hide their blank faces. Noh Masks are already a little creepy (if you ask me!) - but very cool, I was able to see some particularly lovely ones on my trip. Here I've painted a lovely maiden in the woods with two faceless ghosts beside her. Is she some sort of spirit herself? Who can say? This is my own original acrylic painting.
