On our last day in Colombo we made two site visits beginning with the Cathedral of our Lady. Inside the Cathedral, we were moved by the children’s choir rehearsal. Though we could not understand the words, the spirituality was inspiring. In the chapel, we viewed and extensive mural of Jesus turning water into wine. Lucky for us, the artist was there to explain his contempory interpretation of the 2000 year-old Biblical story. Of course, Jesus was Sri Lankan in appearance, gesture and dress. Even the symbolic cross was the Cyrillic version. At the well were three Sri Lankan women – Sinhalese and Tamil – all wearing the modern attire of Kandian saris and skirts. Even the landscape told the story of the topography, flora and fauna of Sri Lanka. Such beautiful work.
