"Scholar,archaeologist,historian and master of a limpid English prose Style,Dr.S.Paranavithana has the best qualifications for guiding us in a study of the ancient Sinhalese.In the brilliant essay in which he introduce the subject,he places the evolution and country of the Sinhalese art of early times in its proper setting,not only in its relation to the history and culture of the inhabitants of Ceylon but also to the great culture and art of India whence their ancestors came.
In this book Dr.paranavithana brings together 116 plates,four of them on colour,covering the full spectrum of the art of the ancient sinhalese.in the process he updates the work of earlier scholars.He makes his comments on the illustrations and presents his won conclusions on points in dispute in regards to the provenance period of execution and meaning of many a work of art.His verdicts are always authoritative and often arresting,based as they are on the deep understanding of the subject,careful observation and ceaseless search for the scarce and the beautiful.
