Face Painting-2

臉譜(れんぷ)-その2

15 February 1966, Taiwan
Face Paintings of Chinese Opera
design: Pi Ta-chun / 邳大椿
printer: Couvoisier S.A., Switzerland

The Second face painting from Taiwan – this is the role of Guan Yu.  The red colour evokes his loyalty to the monarch.  An actor attaches a large beard to play this role.

臉譜(れんぷ)シリーズの2枚目は、同じく三国志の登場人物である関羽の隈取りです。赤は忠誠を表す色。このメイクにフサフサの髭をまとって関羽を演ずるようです。
