Make-up & Chinese art #2: Monkey King opera mask made of nail polish, eyeliner and eyeshadow! Opera masks of all sorts of colours were used in many Chinese operas as far as the 3rd century AD. 
Monkey King (or Sun WuKong) is the main character in one of the most famous classical Chinese novels, Journey to the West 「西游记」. He exploded from a rock and when I was a kid, mum told me that was how I was born too. I burst into tears after that. 😭
