Brassware in Sri Lanka traces its origins to rituals practiced in Buddhist and Hindu temples. Spires of shrines, bells and water vessels were crafted after images of gods, goddesses, mythical creatures and wildlife. Going as far back as the 12th century, the use of metal seems to have flourished during the Kandyan era. . The Satmahal Lohapasadaya (seven storied bronze palace) is a fine example of Sri Lanka’s prolific use of brass and bronze since the early days.

This sembu (pot with a handle) uses imagery of the mysterious Narilatha, the mythical woman who is said to emerge from the vines of the plant, known to distract many a sage.
