'Eloquence in Stone' is a story in stone. Through the eyes of the camera it tells the tale of Sri Lanka's stone heritage through the ages, a strange, sometimes amazing saga of a small people on a small island in a corner of Asia. These people are heirs to one of the oldest living cultures in the world; they still speak the same language. practice the same religion and follow the same customs as their ancestors did more than 2,000 years ago. 'Eloquence in Stone' is the story iof their art and their craft; their architecture, their sculpture and their painting. Weaving the story of man together with that of the landscape 'Eloquence in Stone' creates a tale of rocks, hills and forests, of streams, rivers and tanks, a world shaped by its environment.
