Description

The main feature of Gal Viharaya is the four images of the Buddha that have been carved on a single, large granite rock face, considered to be among the best examples of the rock carving and sculpting arts of the ancient Sinhalese.

The large seated image is 15 feet 2.5 inches (4.636 m) tall, and depicts the dhyana mudra. The seat was carved in the shape of a lotus flower, its base decorated with carvings of flowers and lions. The statue sits on a carved throne, decorated with makara[disambiguation needed] images, with four small images of the Buddha (identical to the larger image) carved inside small chambers. This is an unusual feature in ancient Sinhalese sculpture, and is presumably the result of Mahayana influence.

Inez Wijker photo de profilMy name is Inez Wijker and I am a passionate photographer.

My specialty is capturing a specific spontaneous moment in time. I call my photographs "magic moments", because they are often made in a magical split second.

For me photography is a way to record everything I like or think is fascinating or am otherwise touched by. Feelings are in that moment 100% leading.
