Sixty-foot giant Vesak lantern to go on display



Gunasena Kurukulasuriya with his creation.

A giant Vesak lantern with over 100 satellites, made by Gunasena Kurukulasuriya, will be on display for the 42nd time during the Vesak season at the SLTB Driving School premises, Galle road, Angulana Junction, Katubedda.

Kurukulasuriya who had been conferred the Kalabhushana award, has international acclaim for his creation which had been on display internationally and islandwide for many decades.

The displaying of the giant lantern commenced from Ratmalana and later in Borella Campbell Park, Seeduwa, near Kelanitissa power plant and Bellanwila. The lantern was also displayed in Singapore.

This year's theme of the Vesak lantern is based on a Jathaka story giving advice to parents whose children are of marriageable age.

Kurukulasuriya claims that the Vesak lantern with a height of 60 foot is the largest made so far.

Around 12,000 electric bulbs will adorn the giant lantern, making it a 'never to be missed' item this season. It will be on display from Vesak Day.
