Sri Lanka Statues
Two polychrome wooden statues from the second and largest cave at Dambulla, in Sri Lanka. Most of the statues and painting in the cave complex relate to Buddha. These figures have been identified as Saman, one of four guardian deities of Sri Lanka, and the Hindu god Vishnu. The statues date from the 12th century A.D.
Isn’t it strange how these statues are so expressionless? I can’t even imagine how old they are, what a great find!

Many of the Buddhas have a sort of smile on their face but these two were pretty stoic.
Wow, pretty impressive.
