PHOENIX — Beginning Saturday, Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave., will present “Legacy of Ceylon: Art and Photography of Sri Lanka.”

The newest exhibition features rare and outstanding Sri Lankan artworks, many of which have never been publicly exhibited, including small, technically refined bronze sculptures, solid bronze sculptures, paintings and original black-and-white photography, a press release from the art museum said.

“Exhibition works hail from as early as the sixth century and span 1,000 years, illuminating the influence of Buddhist and European traditions on the nation’s art history and offering deep insight into pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial life on the island,” the press release said.
