Propsperity pot is Sinhalese art symbol

Your journey through this ‘Island of Wonders' has come to its final stop. Thoughts of taking home one last souvenir to preserve your memories of this magical place, rise in your mind as you collect one more shell, one more blossom. However, Lotus Sunrise has the perfect way for you to keep the spirit of the island with you always.

A traditional symbol in Sinhalese art is the Punkalasa or prosperity pot. A sign of good luck and abundance, represented by an ornamental pot with flowers, creepers and mixed with animal motifs. Created especially, this Punkalasa is adorned with tropical blossoms, including the yellow frangipani for happiness, and two young Narilata buds (only petal framed faces are seen) to inspire the heart.

Twin fish are added to bless one's daily bounty and good health. Nearing the base of the arrangement, are colourful shells that focus protective and harmonious energies in your home for a long, happy and prosperous life. Finally, this blessful Punkalasa is completed with a stylish border of aquatic foilage following a rhythmic pattern and sealed with shell motif amulets.
