This Buddha head is typical of Khmer Art and you can discover it at the magnificent Angkor Wat site in Siem Reap. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. Today, it is one of the most important pilgrimage sites for Buddhists in Cambodia and around the world. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s main tourist attraction.
I made this painting in thanks to a couple of Khmer friends.
