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 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.
