Sri Lhankan mythology and history artwork

Recommended Posts

I stumbled over this artist's portolio.

The images from the mythology have a vibe that made me a bit undecided where to take inspiration from them for Glorantha.

If you are in the USA, the imagery may be NSFW at times. The history and myths mentioned make good short research topics for non-European stories. Those with European colonial history might be useful for Cthulhu - for a change with the cultists among the colonial officials and not the natives.

This creature (or deity) is a Gajasinghe:

He's got some uh lack of familiarity with the female form though.

Are you talking about the chest-zeppelins? That seems to be a common trope in South Asian temple art, so maybe he just replicated it.

he didn't replicate anything else - he turned art bodies into his own realistic thing, so i think it's his own issue

So you are saying that his depictions of the female form lack gravity?

ha!

i think maybe he lacks understanding of the source material, as with the Wiener Kaffee in this Japanese café
