Eyes and mouth are movable and they enable various frames of mind to be shown, e.g. curiosity, fear, amazement, daring, exhaustion and tiredness. The man behind him moves the body suitable to his frontman to let the movements look as harmonious as possible.

When the lion has eaten the food he notices that it is holy and because of this he gets drunk until he finally spits out the food. Advanced lion dancers and professional teams of course take up very difficult challenges (e.g. acrobatics on 3 meters high lake dwellings) which require a special degree of body control and intensive training.
