Chinese Opera Mask

Chinese opera is considered a cultural treasure of China. Chinese opera masks are usually made of pure white ceramic. Other materials used to make simple opera masks are paper, tissue, and silk. The masks are then painted with intricate artwork which defines the character and role.  Because these masks define the character, less actors and actresses are needed to put on a performance.
