Peking Opera Facial Makeup

洪福遠 , 1990

Facial makeup is a special makeup method in Chinese Peking Opera. Each historical figure or a certain type of figure has a facial makeup, which emphasizes facial muscles and facial features with color, so as to reflect the character. For example, the red face represents loyalty and chivalry, the white face represents sinister and cunning, and the yellow face represents bravery and irritability. These masks seem to be the code of Chinese culture and convey the mysterious and special side of Chinese culture.
