Painted Face


Open Face with Beard and helmet

Filed Under : Customs

Cantonese opera strong male characters wear "hoy meen" (開面, "open face") makeup. Each character's makeup has its own distinct characteristics, with symbolic patterns and coloration.

The photo was taken during Parade for the 9th Anniversary Celebration of Reunification (慶祝回歸 9 周年大巡遊)
