    The masks used in the Chhau dance of Purulia mainly depict mythological figures like Mahishasur-Mardini, Rama-Sita, the battle between Rama and Ravana, etc.  Chhau masks are made by artists from the Sutradhar community. The making of a mask goes through various stages.

    The mask used in the Chhau dance of Purulia is mainly for mythological characters such as Mahishasur-Mardini, Rama-Sita, the fight of Rama and Ravana, etc. To portray Gods and Goddesses like Devi DurgaLakshmi and Kartik the masks are colored dark yellow or bright orange. The white color is often used for lord ShivaGanesh and Devi Saraswati. Black or dark blue is used for Maa Kali. A tilak is generally used on the forehead of Krishna and Rama. The Asuras are painted in black or dark green with a thick mustache, protruding teeth, and large eyes.

    The Chhau mask is a traditional cultural heritage of `Purulia in the Indian state of West Bengal. The main difference between the Purulia Chhau dance and the Odisha Chhau dance is in the use of the mask. Mask-making begins by using a rough stone mold, shaped like a face, over which a layer of clay is spread.
