Face Paintings of Chinese Opera
design: Pi Ta-chun / 邳大椿
printer: Couvoisier S.A., Switzerland
Yesterday was Chinese new year and people make a week long celebration. Theatrical make-up of Chinese Opera is often used for festive decorations. This is a particular make-up of a role of Zhang Fei, a military general in the 3rd century A.D. and a popular role in the Records of the Three Kingdoms.
A very strong face to stick on an envelope – a talisman of a letter.
