Incidentally, just the other day I watched an episode of "Land of the Dragon" on PBS that was about Peking Opera. It touched on some of the masks and what their color signified, e.g., 关公(红)、曹操(白)、包青天(黑), etc.

Speaking of "facial expression", what do you think about the
dark green "laughing" smilie icon_biggrin.gif ?


David,
I would like to call it : 广告式渲染形环保大笑 icon_biggrin.gif


Sounds good! The direct translation into English is "Sensationalistic Ad Style Eco Laugh or "SASEL" in short, LOL.

Green shows that the character is violent, impulsive and lacks restraint.


This matches perfectly my understanding of the usual meaning of Green on a human "face" in traditional Chinese context.

Another association of green face is with "beast" as in 水浒传英雄 “青面兽” 杨志。

Pretty negative really when the colour is applied to a human face.

Cultural Color Oct 27, 2014

Cultural Meanings of Color and Color Symbolism
http://www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com/cultural-color.html

With the advent of the World Wide Web, there is a narrowing of the differences in meanings of colors between different cultures and countries; however, if you are marketing to a particular ethnic group it is wise to take into account their color associations to maximise your impact. By mixing appropriate amounts of different colours however you can often neutralize inherent negative cultural connotations. ...


Meaning in Color
http://markedbydesign.net/blog/meaning-in-color/

Green

In Western nations, green is the color of environmental awareness, spring, new birth, going, Christmas, St. Patricks Day. In Ireland specifically, green is the national color, and is also the color of Catholicism. In The United states, green is also the color of money!

“An apple a day keeps the attorney away” Oct 27, 2014

Grasping an apple in his right hand he looked around the room and said, “An apple a day keeps the attorney away.” Not to discount good oral health and hygiene, but the true take-away from this particular piece of advice spoken by Jeff Nees, WDG’s CFO, during the latest ESYP discussion is a reminder for architects to maintain a healthy degree of professional diligence and caution when it comes to contract documents.

以前我“小声地”向您请教问题,您说用文字交谈无论大声小声是没有分别的。那为什么“大声笑”和“小声笑”就可以区别呢? LOL .

Probably, the Bell was stolen by someone with his ears plugged. However, I still saw a warning sign as shown below in front of the gate:
