Blood red eyesChundappoo (Chunda Flower) is also called Punyaha Chunda as the flower is used for preparing Punyaham (Holy Water) in Kerala temples. After removing petals they have to take out the seed which should not broken. Then rub the seed with little cow ghee which gradually change the seed colour into soft dark black colour. After complete makeup the performer has to put the seed in his lower eye lids.Then the performer has to close the eye and roll his eyes balls. The red eyes give the performer the spiritual ambience to their face. #bloodred #eyes #performer #spiritual #kerala #talent #kathakalidance #art #vsco #inspireindia #incredibleindiaoffical #kerala🌴 #spotlight #photography #photographersofindia #viewfinder #mallugram #malayali #canon #50mm #littothomasphotography

‘Kari’ (black) is the code for characters like hunters and forest inhabitants. Black is also used for representing demonesses and unreliable characters with distinctive red patches. Head gears and face makeup gives the spiritual life to their role. It takes several hours to complete the entire get up of all the actor-dancers of a play thus bringing out the personality of each character.#kerala #root #spiritual #act #incredible #india #vsco #instavsco #wanderingsoul #experienced #divine #keralite #artforms #photography #instagramhub #coloursplash #photographersofindia #canon #50mm #littothomasphotography

Pacha is the name of a make-up in Kathakali. It literally means green and is donned by virtuous or heroic characters. Hence kings and divine characters wear this make-up. Some characters portrayed in this make-up are Dharmaputra, Nala, Daksha, Bhimasena ,krishna and arjun. The all makeup procedures take almost 3 hours. #kerala #artist #root #incredibleindia🇮🇳 #kathakalidance #vsco #wanderlusting #experiences #kerala🌴 #moodygram #instagram #instaindia #canon #50mm #littothomasphotography

Yellow is the code for monks, mendicants and women. Minukka (shining) with a warm yellow, orange or saffron typifies noble, virtuous feminine characters such as Sita, Panchali and Mohini.They play significant roles in the story play.This photo has been taken at the time of makeup where he is expressing himself with the character before the play.#kerala #highlights #themes #kathakalidance #high #spiritual #beliefs #throughmyeyes #actor #femalecharacter #expressions #mirroreffect #wanderings #wanderlusting #vsco #instavsco #moodygram #canon#50mm #littothomasphotography

Red colour face is the code for someone with an evil streak such as Ravana, Dushasana and Hiranyakashipu.Kathakali make up is an elaborate process lasting for 3 hours.It helps in giving a super human look to the actors.All the colours used in the make-up are obtained from natural substances and herbs.#kerala #root #kathakaliface #backstages #scene #facetime #smile #makeup #incredible_shot #earthportraits #kerala🌴 #canon #littothomasphotography

Kathakali is one of the major forms of classical Indian dance. It is another "story play" genre of art, but one distinguished by the elaborately colorful make-up, costumes and facemasks that the traditionally male actor-dancers wear. The traditional themes of the Kathakali are folk mythologies, religious legends and spiritual ideas from the Hindu epics.#female #character #yakshi #kathakalidance #kerala #root #temple #believe #spiritually #artform #storyplay #hindu #experience # #closetogod #keralatourism🌴 #photoseries #canon #50mm #warmtone #littothomasphotography
