Buddha is a sacred image in Sri Lanka and can be seen all over the country, from enormous statues to tiny figurines. The elephant too is a typical symbol of Sri Lanka, and it's likeness can be seen everywhere, in paintings, on fabrics, as huge carved wooden statues and tiny little ornate figurines. PLEASE NOTE: I am away in Sri Lanka from 1st - 19th May. Any orders placed during this period will not be fulfilled until my return. With many thanks for your understanding.
