Collection: Muthu Kuda (මුතුකුඩ)

The modern-day umbrella is used as protection against rain. However, its original purpose was to shade a person from the sun. Likewise, there is an abundance of references to the usage of umbrellas in art and literature, universally. When it comes to Muthu Kuda in Sri Lanka, it is a device used to shield Buddhist monks from the effects of nature.
