Excellent example of a Patisthana. I am from Sri Lanka and these are always a pleasure to see for me.

These patisthana with second set of wings are believed to be guard arms for artillery and from what I gather from old locals is that the second set of wings were for attaching a lit match fuse cord and used to fire cannons.

I am also very curious about the shield in the last image. does that have any reference that it is from Sri Lanka.

Best Regards
