Thanks krancmm. In fact, I didn't take this photograph myself. It was given to me by the wood-carver who said someone else took it after the carving won first prize in a Sri Lankan government competition in 2011.

Nylonblue, thanks. Yes, the gods are sitting on clouds. The entire piece was carved from a single piece of wood.
