@Wolfgang Prigge: Thank you Wolfgang!
I love this figure. The big grin and bulging eyes seems to be an image in common with various pacific ocean tribes, like the Maori in New Zealand. Do you know if there is any connection in this art work?

@Twelvebit: I don't think so Twelvebit. This is a very common 'monster' or demon face in Japan, a motif seen everywhere. Don't know the story behind it though...
