Instead of painting the mask on actor's face, the artist created this Beijing opera mask wall hanging with colored flax strings.

The character Da Peng (the Big Eagle) is a powerful monster in Chinese classics 'Journey to the West'. The Monkey King had a lot of troubles fighting with him; finally he tamed the big eagle with the Buddha's help.

The facial makeups of Beijing opera are various designs of lines and colored patches painted on the faces of certain operatic characters. They follow traditionally fixed patterns for specific types to highlight the disposition and quality in the personages, so that the audience may immediately know whether they are heroes or villains, whether they are kind or treacherous and wicked. Yellow and white represent cunning, red stands for uprightness and loyalty, black means valor and wisdom, blue and green indicate the vigorous and enterprising character of rebellious heroes and golden and silver represent mystic or super-natural power.
