Shroud of Clouds

Shroud of Clouds by Son of the Morning Light on

The Ruwanwelisaya is perhaps King Dutugemunu’s most famous work, taller than the Taj Mahal, twice the height of the Colosseum, and older than both, it was completed only after his death in the 2nd century BC. On his deathbed, the king’s last wish was to see his final creation and, to ease his mind, Prince Saddha Tissa, his brother, had the unfinished frame of the Ruwanwelisaya shrouded in white cloth, making it look complete to the failing eyes of Dutugemunu. Shot on assignment for Serendib, the inflight magazine of SriLankan Airlines. My story, The First Kingdom of Lanka runs in the February 2017 issue.
