The hannya mask is used to represent the woman whos obsession and jealousy has turned her into a demon. With a combination of suffering and anger her passions have thrown her into disorder. Here the snake is paired with her to represent sexual passion and greed. Snakes often have many positive meanings but not when paired with the hanya.
