Different Colors Symbolize Different Character Characteristics
Apr 28, 2018

The mask, known in Tibetan as "Pak", is mainly used for various folk performances. It has a direct relationship with people's daily life, labor, and entertainment and spreads throughout Tibet. Throughout the Qing Dynasty, Tibetan operas spread widely to the people, and their repertoire and genre are more colorful. Compared with religious masks, Tibetan opera masks have strong secular tendencies and folk colors. The subjects of performance include historical stories and mythological characters, gods and animals. The masks of the king, minister, lama, old woman, and old man in Tibetan opera masks have unique personality characteristics; in the plot, the creation of gods, ghosts, and animal masks, although with obvious traces of the influence of religious masks, most of them are personified and endowed with Human emotions. The true, the good, the beautiful, the false, the ugly, and the evil of mankind all have concrete expressions in the mask. The masks are multi-colored, and different colors symbolize different character characteristics, such as the deep red symbol of the king, the light red for the minister, the yellow symbol for the living Buddha, the blue for the negative character, and the semi-black and white symbol for the two-faced school. When the Tibetan opera began, the first thing to appear was to wear the mask of a hunter. Hunter masks are mostly blue or cyan.
