Approach deriving inspiration From nature, history from nature , history and Sinhalese art.
I was extremely delighted to see the new costumes decorating the elephants participating in this year’s Kumbal Perahara. The attire is brilliantly designed to expose the dignified features of the walking elephant.
The “Gajaga Vannama” enacts movements. The new attire, in the selection of the colours and Sinhalese decorative elements, does justice to the rhythmic gait and Natural features of the elephant.
Honorable Diyawadana Nilame Paradeep Nilanga Delabandara and the designer of the concept deserve credit for the creative novel approach deriving inspiration From nature, history from nature , history and Sinhalese art.
