The Department of Archaeology notes that the symbolic Lion’s Paws afoot the Sigiriya rock has been subjected to discolouration due to the spread of a lichen species.

According to the Department, this spread of lichen species over the years have now resulted in visible spots on the symbolic Lion’s Paws.

The Department adds that a team of specialists have been assigned to restore the paws to its original appearance and that the restoration process is due to begin within the course of next week.
