In the mask used in the Demala kolama (Tamil comedy) similar attributes created accordingly can be seen. Instead of the fez cap(hat) a turban has been used to cover the head, and the face has been coloured black. The teeth created for this face takes a prominent place. In some kolam kuttam (comic troupes) there are two faces, male and female. While in other kolam kuttam (dance tropes) the masks of the Demala kolama (Tamil comedy) have been adapted for the trader characters called Hettiyar or Chetti and shaped and coloured suitably.
