Description“The royal ladies in the frescoes wear pleated robes from the waist upwards, save for necklace, armlets, wrist lets, ear and hair ornaments and displayed their breasts. The ladies in waiting wear waist clothes, few ornaments and a firm 'breast bandage' or thanapatiya. The Sigiriya style of clothing — Sigiriya frescoes depict women wearing the cloth gracefully draped like a dhoti tied in a knot at the front and pulled down to expose the navel — must have survived a few centuries in Ceylon'.
Shakila Malavige Member Since January 2011 Artist Statement When I was a toddler I started painting all around me. Walls, school desks, floor were my favourite canvases. I was always punished as a very mischievous girl because of all complaints made by neighbours about their decorated walls. My art has it's passion and enthusiasm that is easily felt by the viewer who loves the nature. I am always trying to capture the essence of the nature trough my vivid and diversifying styles.. My shop carries the arty sensation of my paintings as product prints, you are welcome to my SHOP
