The mysteries of the world are all but gone. For thousands of years, Sri Lanka has been the abode of the martial art Angampora, a sophisticated ancient discipline that was fortified with military philosophy, a deep spiritual connection with nature, and a deadly array of combat techniques. The dramatic saga of this exotic art begins with legends that date back to the dim recesses of time and unfolds to the present day, where it has survived the onslaught of three centuries of colonialism and political unrest in Sri Lanka's recent past. Angampora: A Nation's Legacy in Pictures is a stunning pictorial narrative of this ageless martial art. For the first time in the world, the art will be showcased in breathtaking pictures that capture the vast span of its influence on Sri Lanka's history and culture. From artifacts never seen before to combat techniques that have remained in supreme secrecy for centuries; illustrating the art's vibrant rituals to its secretive and deadly node science, Angampora: A Nation's Legacy in Pictures brings to the world an unparalleled work of Sri Lankan research and photography. Written by Deshamanya Ajantha Mahanthaarachchi and photographed by Reza Akram, this book is a seminal work on an undiscovered cultural legacy of Sri Lanka.
