Balinese Masks

In the future, I may post more on Balinese design in general as I have found it to be the most appealing to me out of my Asian travels. However, I am on a mission for now.

I bought a mask for my father and I am trying to find out which of the Balinese? Hindu? gods it is supposed to be in the image of….

I had wanted to write down the name of the God when I bought it but I lacked paper at the time. My thoughts were that I would later study a bit about the god and then make a little book for my dad and give him the book and mask together. I thought that would make a more meaningful gift.

Here is the mask…. Comment if you know this Balinese? Hindu? God:
