Our Handmade Products
We are mostly focused wooden Sanni Masks & coconut shell statues. These products are handmade designs. Sanni masks are used for gift items, home decor & wall hanging. These sanni masks formed in srilanka dance culture.
Long before the advent of western medicine, Sri Lanka had its own indigenous system of medicine and ritualistic healing.In the ancient times, people in Sri Lanka believed they fell ill because various dark spirits—or demons—invaded their bodies. Because of this belief, various healing rituals with the purpose of expelling these demons were conducted. Commonly known as thovil in Sinhalese.The sanni masks are mainly used in healing ceremonies and worn by an edura (a sort of Sri Lankan artist/exorcist). Apparently, there are eighteen different Sanni masks, each specializing in curing specific illnesses.
There is an opinion in the sri lankan culture that it is a good thing to keep such masks at home. Today, masks are used in home decorationand as a gift. Some of these masks are created in our Ceylon craft bank. They are,
Deva sanni mask
