Face Painting-3 / 臉譜-3

February 8, 2019

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

The third face painting from Taiwan – this is the role of Xiang Yu.  He was a commander in the 2nd century B.C. and being a model of a Chinese opera “Farewell My Concubine”.  No, not looking like a monkey, but an expression of agony.

臉譜(れんぷ)シリーズの3枚目は、紀元前2世紀の楚漢戦争を戦った武将、項羽(または項籍)の隈取りです。「四面楚歌」という言葉のもとや京劇『覇王別姫』の逸話を残す有名人。苦悩の表情なのに猿みたい?と思うわたしは、たぶん不謹慎です、、。
