Yao Shaosi is a character in the Investiture of the Gods, a novel written in Ming Dynasty. Together with Chen Jiugong, they were apprentices of Zhao Gongming, owner of Luofu mountain. In the battle against Xiqi, Yao was killed by Ne Zha. After his death, he was honored as Lishi Xianguan.

Introduction of Facial makeup:
Facial makeup, or Lian Pu, refers to facial designs for Jing and Chou roles. It originated from daily life experience, describing such changes of expression as white for fear, red for shyness, dark for suntan, and sallow for illness. Most facial designs attach great importance to the eyes.  The facial designs for the Jing roles are made by painting, powdering and coloring in the basic forms of Zheng Lian (keeping the basic face pattern), San Kuai Wa Lian (three-section face) and Sui Lian (fragmentary face). These types are widely used to represent generals, officials, heroes, gods and ghosts. The Chou actors can be recognized by the patch of white in various shapes painted around the eyes and nose. Sometimes these patches are outlined in black, hence the term Xiao Hua Lian (partly painted face). The Chou roles fall into the following two categories: Wen Chou and Wu Chou.

Facial makeup bears three main characteristics. Firstly, it is the unity and contradiction of beauty and ugliness. Secondly, it is closely related to the personality of the characters. Lastly, the patterns are stylized.

Beijing opera is one of the most popular drama widely welcomed and loved, no matter home and abroad. It is now acknowledged as a sign of Chinese traditional culture. The photos of facial mask can be found on large buildings, product packages, various porcelains and clothes. It has gone beyond the stage, from which we can see the deep influence of facial makeup. More and more foreigners have interest in it and begin to explore the secret of facial makeup.

My daughter loves it so much and asked me to buy one another to make them accompany each other, or this one will be lonely and depressed. I promised and had made another order of it. It is really a good toy for kids.

It has good quality and it takes a few days to deliver. The key point i want to mention is that you’d better improve your package.

My niece likes this toy a lot. I bought it as a birthday gift to her. It's really a lovely scenery to see a little girl play with this cute toy.
