    Peking Opera (II): An icon of traditional Chinese culture Facial makeup is an art form loved by Peking Opera fans both at home and abroad, and is known as one of the icons of the traditional Chinese culture. Every kind of makeup has its own unique application method, but they are all based on one particular color with exaggerated, beatified, deformed or symbolic lines. The drawing mainly focuses on the five sense organs, especially the eyebrows, the eyes and the nose as well as each character's personality. Each historical figure or protagonist uses makeup with each color representing a particular character, which is easily identified. Specifically, a red face stands for positive, valiant, and loyal characters, black and blue faces for neutral, bold and forthright characters, and a purple face for honest characters; but yellow and white faces carry negative meaning, representing sinister, cruel and treacherous characters. While gold and silver faces stand for deities or ghosts.
