My elder brother Mr. Babu Komath, preparing to appear before Villagers as Narasimha!

This is called "Muchurul" or "Kozhipoovu" in Malayalam. It is one of the genre of face writing specifically for Vishnumoorthy Theyyam. He is also a painter and performer of Kuzhal. In off season of Theyyam he draws images in a canvas that villagers hang in their new house to cast away evil eye. He is also a modern theater actor.
