Notes
The figure on the left holding the umbrella represents the Yang deity; the figure on the right, holding the coin, represents the Yin deity.This rendition of the myth produced by the Jin Village is older than that roduced by the Cao Village (See records Wu-san, Wu Gulao Qian and Kaitian Pidi), because of the fierce looking masks the deities were wearing. Also see the records of the modern rendition of the same play.

Jin village production, Dance of the Umbrella and the Coin
Production notes
The masks in this Jin village performance are angrier and more frightening than those of the Cao village performance also archived in GloPAD; one may infer that the Cao performance is based on a later, more comforting version of the creation myth.
