Pacific Narilata

Mythical flower originating in the Himalayas

Exploring the inner terrain of the island's jungle, you discover waterfalls, mountains and valleys with breathtaking views. A feeling of having stepped into a lost world, forgotten in the mists of time, imbues your thoughts. A magical presence surrounds you. Was this the paradise on earth created for Adam and Eve? Perhaps another world still exists here, untouched or unspoiled, deep in the heart of the island. A cradle for myths and legends that lie silently, awaiting to be discovered.

This design represents a motif based on a mythical flower with its origins in the Himalayas. Used widely in Sri Lankan art, a Narilata is an artist's impression of this flower. According to the eastern mythology, this rare and mystical flower appears in the form of a real human body when in full bloom.

Here the flower is based on the female body from the waist up, while the bottom half is consisting of leaves and creepers that cradle the flower. A bare breasted beauty adorned with an island blossom in her hair, serenly gazes out from her enchanting place in the universe, flanked by delicate pink frangipanis while holding offerings of tropical fruits. Created in stylised features fitting to the Oceanic people, this Narilata is a first to be inspired by the Pacific islands.
