Make-up is a highly reckoning factor in Kathakali. Elaborated, colourful and thoughtful make-up process lasts for over three hours. It helps in giving a super human look to the actors.

Each color in make-up denotes each particular quality. Red denotes turmoil, Black denotes evil, Yellow denotes combination of godliness & turmoil so on...

This is a demon character in transition, shot at Thrippoonithura temple, with my friend Abilash (LightSync)
