Abstract(in English) To examine how computer technology can produce delicate, audience-inspiring presentations like "Noh", we attempted to create a Noh mask(Ko-omote) using a 3D computer graphics technique, by only referring to the curving of a wooden mask. It was possible to detect several characteristics of the mask structure, such as a uniquely curved surface, distinct edges, and asymmetry, in the creation process. Rendering images with different angles and lighting conditions showed the possibility that such a specific structure is closely related to subtle facial expression changes.
