SRI LANKA......Polonnaruwa sculptures...Why is the king wearing a sarong?............. Visit the IDIOT KINGS{short description of image}

Polonnaruwa......Gyan's Mad Srilanka Page....My revision of history!.....Did Srilankans discover genetic engineering? How else do you get a seven-hooded cobra!........... With the sort of bureaucracy we have in the old republic I wouldn't be too surprised at anything with SEVEN HEADS!........ {short description of image}
Statue of King Parakramabahu or someone else. The statue stands on the dam ("bund") of the Parakrama Samudra at Polonnaruwa. Note the knot in the sarong and what the hell is he holding in his hands? Gate keepers or "Doratupala" from Polonnaruwa. The guy has certainly got his hands full. That is a seven-hooded cobra over his head!..And what are the two PORGS (Persons Of Restricted Growth) doing there at his feet...Weird!
King Parakrama doratupala
The photographs were taken during my visit to the old Republic in Jan 2001
