Description The mysterious solemnity of Okina's dance (Walters 95.236), here performed by two actors, is contrasted by the vigorously comical dance of Sambaso. Kogyo has depicted Sambaso against a vivid orange background to reflect the energy of his dance. He wears a mask almost identical to Okina's except it is black in color.
