“Then Isaac Sowed in that Land, and Reaped in the Same Year a Hundredfold…”*

Wap Magula #11 by Son of the Morning Light  on 500px.com

A farmer brings his plough forward to be blessed during the annual wap magula; a unique farmers’ mass held in the paddy fields of Wahakotte before the annual maha sowing season. Matale District, Sri Lanka, October 2015. For more about this uncommon ceremony, and a history of the area, see my piece in Serendib Magazine.
