These beautiful wooden panels are hand-painted with traditional Buddhist themes that have adorned Sri Lankan temples for centuries. Most of them are painted on recycled wood - anything from old ceiling planks to cupboard doors and driftwood. The rich colours reflect the natural dyes found locally in Sri Lanka. Please note these paintings are not shown to scale here. You can view a selection of these paintings at the Serendip market stall in Greenwich Market. To request specific paintings to be brought to the market for viewing, please email: info@serendipcrafts.co.uk
