Features of Sichuan Opera’s Masks


In the history of Sichuan Opera, there is no full-time face painter, and all actors drew their own faces, making the actors’ faces or masks personalized and diversified. Patterns of the whole or part of animals are used for expressing the human characteristics, chosen on the basis of roles, performances, and portrait of characters and processed by deforming, exaggerating and ingenious arranging. Characteristics can also be expressed in color. For example, the red is used to express loyalty; the black means the straightforward and unselfish characters; the white symbolizes ruthless and insidious; the green and blue is to express the heroic outlaws, or the brave and fierce characters; while the gold, silver and gray mean mystery in expressing the roles of Buddha, god, fairy, demon, ghosts and so on.
