Awesome. Face of emotions!
Wow – love how the white mask draws you in – fabulous capture!:)
Every culture has those aspects related to the fantastic legends and myths!
They have always been the focal points and the most interesting of my travels… but I have not ever had the good fortune to observe from behind the scenes, the preparations, rehearsals, the makeup and costumes!
Now I can only browse when the orchestra or my children will “warm up” before playing their instruments…. :-) Is always exciting, but no special makeup, no tribal costumes…
Thank you for Joshi for showing us everything! :-) claudine
Very cool shot Joshi, great contrast ~ I like the angle of the shot and mask.

The colors and style seem very Southwestern US. Interesting…

Is there any historical.cultural links between kabuki and noh and Indian dramas? The face makeup seems so similar.
Fine composition and an extraordinary mask.
The kathakali dancers are true artists and magnificent!
What an intense bird mask!
