Another extremely challenging topic by The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge. Transformation is a part of nature and every natural thing slowly transforms into something else. The kid grows to be old, the flowers transform to become fruits, the caterpillar transforms into a shining Butterfly. But I would like to present a very unusual transformation – which is completely unnatural.
The ‘Lady’ in the image is a Kathakali Dancer. ‘Kathakali’, one of the oldest performing arts in the world, is a form of dance drama depicting stories of Ramayana & Mahabharata. All the artists in this, including the one in the picture, are ‘Male’, who through their makeup, costume and gesture Transform into a Female during the play.
