Great posting, could you clear up a question about the following sentence?
"In between the female figures of the knife under question is a knot formed out of four figures. This is a regular feature in Ceylonese art. More common with female figures but also with male figures this knot involves multiple interlocking figures. Again I have attached a knot of seven human fgures this time in a circular motif from the book 'Sinhala Desika Wishwakoshaya'. "
Are you saying that this circular motif is:
A) A Ceylonese motif only
B) A Hindu motif only used in Ceylon
C) A Ceylonese motif used by Hindus only in Ceylon
D) Something else......
Have attached photo of circular motif....
