This mask has oval or slit eyes, often framed in metal (tin), and a large beak or snout with a black beard. As the dancer swoops and dances, the masker carries in its hands horsetail fly whisks that are waved gently to imitate a large and graceful bird. This mask represents a hornbill bird and the dancer would have sung songs and proverbs to instruct the people in the importance of this mythical bird.
