Collection: Mudali Kolama

The mask of the Mudali (official) has been carved to display the arrogance and importance of a government official. Masks have been created with and without combs fitted to the head. Over the upper lip and round the two corners of the mouth was a moustache twisted and turned to two sides, and on two sides of the face are puffed up cheeks. By these mean an appearance of great dignity and importance is depicted. The mask of Mudali of the Ambalangoda, Hirewatte, Gunadasa dance troupe is square in shape, but in general this is not shown in other creation of dance troupes.
