Before a performer wears the Majipa Lakhe attire to be publicly displayed in the streets of Kathmandu, it is first worshipped on its throne.Lakhe and Jhyalincha masks are brought out in to the procession for mending, grooming, and repainting for the upcoming Indra Jatra Festival. It is kept in its throne until it is sent to a craftsman chitrakar(craftsman; usually a painter) of Newar Community. Similarly, yak hair is brushed and fitted in a mask. This is a closed session that no one is permitted to witness except for the guardians of Lakhe.
