Wooden statue, Jak wood, painted
Besides his work in stone A. Kalugalla also carves sculptures in different kinds of wood. The sculptor prefers to work with the hard and extremely durable teak as well as with soft and light types of wood, some of which are commonly used for traditional masks, too. But you'll also find statues made from the favorite wood of Sri Lanka, the local Jak, a very hard but brittle wood that has been and still is used for windows, doors and furniture since the old days.
The artist paints many of his wooden sculptures.
