Photographer's Note

This dance image was shot at the Kandyan Art Association & Culture Centre under limited ambient light using a high ISO number.

The dancer is dancing a South Sri Lanka mask dance with the Raksha (devil) mask symbolizing the fight between a cobra and a bird. This dance is used to exorcise demons from the possessed and is still believed to be effective psychiatric treatment in Sri Lanka
