In this painting, the creator is inspired by the scene of a rural life in the countryside. The bull and the cart are rooted in the country’s past and present as a confidante of both noble and commoner. As the sole mode of road transport for Sri Lankans not so long ago, the bullock cart not only aided in transportation for the villagers, but also in relieving the burdens of their livelihoods.
The artist recreates colors he has seen at the scene. This creation takes you down memory lane, to the simplicity of country living and the times of yesteryear, where the pace of life was slow and charming. It’s a revisit to the past or better yet a hope for the future.
