This mask depicts the characteristics of a Tamil national in the facial features and has a fitted turban, and it has been designed to show the symptoms of the demala (Tamil) sanniya, which are lack of proper consciousness, madness, running here and there, talking nonsense, and mispronouncing Tamil words when speaking. In modern times, the demala sanniya mask is dark brown in colour and the forehead is covered with white ash.
