My Contribution to the Sugar Art Museum is a sculpture of a Sri Lankan Kandyan Dancer which was inspired by a Leather sculpture that I have seen and it was created by Sri Lankan Artist, Mahinda Ranaweera. Kandyan dance takes its name from Kandy, the last Royal capital of Sri Lanka and the dance is considered to be sacred to the god Kohomba. It is highly mannered and athletic, combined with stylized hand and head gestures with acrobatic maneuvers including spectacular backflips, huge high-kicking leaps and dervish-like whirling pirouettes. Their costume, referred to as the Ves costume, is very elaborate and includes a specific headdress. The dancer’s chest is covered with a net full of decorative beads and the headdress is a big metallic front that makes the dancer look taller than they are. Anklets and other jewelry are also worn during the dance.
