This is our entry in Dutch goes the Photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge — Exotic.
This fire eater was one of the Kandyan Dance performers at the Kandyan Cultural Centre in Kandy, Sri Lanka. According to the program, the Gini Sisila (Fire Dance) is a “south Ceylon fire dance showing the power of charms over fire and twenty seven devils that can trouble mankind. The absolute faith of the fire dancers protects them from the flames. This dance also includes fire-eating.” We thought the whole performance was quite exotic.
