Holi – It is the festival of colours. Celebrated mainly in North India, the festival has an important religious significance attached to it.

Faces, expressions and colours. All on one wall. Found this in a woodcut shop in Sri Lanka. 🙂 Amazing stuff indeed. 🙂

These are masks that are very famous in Sri Lanka. The shop had so many more faces hanging on the walls. The colours, the expressions, the shapes and sizes were simply fascinating. They tell a story about the place. They represent history, folklore and myth. It was wonderful.
