Haa wondering whats happening here?? As few of you must have guessed the man here is having his face painted for he is the lead actor in "Kathakali" ~~ A folk dance from Kerala, India. You can read more about it here

  1. It looks amazing. Otherwise I am also not fond of face painting. The only exception is holi.

  2. वीडियो पर तो नृत्यों में यह देखा था. जीवंत पेंटिंग अद्भुत है.

  3. More elaborate than I would have expected!
