The Anointing Ceremony during the Coronation of King George VI, which precedes the crowning. Illustration shows King George VI having taking his Robe with its Cape of ermine off, wearing a satin under-robe reaching to the knees and sat in the Coronation Chair (with the ancient stone of Scone), under a canopy of gold and silver brocade held over him by four Peers who are Knights of the Garter. The Archbishop of Canterbury, having dipped his fingers in Holy Oil, anoints the King and makes the sign of the cross on the crown of his head, the breast and the palm of each hand. Date: 1937

Sri Lanka - Geta Beraya and Udekkiya players

Traditional Sri Lankna drums and drummers. The standing player is holding a hill country drum called the Geta Beraya (a drum with a knot). This is the main drum used to accompany dance sequences in all Kandyan rituals. The right face is covered with the hide of a monkey or monitor lizard and the left side is covered with cattle hide, which is used to provide a finer sound. The seated player is holding a Udekkiya, a very handy drum predominantly used during Kandyan rituals and folk dances. It is played with one hand while handling and controlling the sound by pressure applied on the string and Sawarama with the other. Date: circa 1908
