These masked dancers represent a demon in a Sherdukpen version of Aji Lhamu, a romance widely known in the Tibetan Buddhist world, including the neighbouring Monpas.

These wooden masked Sherdukpen dancers are figures in a version of a yak dance performed widely across the Tibetan Buddhist world. These figures are two of the three sons in the story, one of whom is dispossessed but later helped by a yak.

The masked man on the left represents the father of the two figures on the right.

The deer dance tells the story (of a hunter and his two sons and dog who trap a deer) as a parable about the immorality of killing animals.

The figures, from right to left, are two queens, a king, a masked demon and two musicians.
