Path to Angkor-Wat – Indochina’s Paradise of the Gods

No.1_?????_ プノンダ(L)

Centered on the interior of what is now Cambodia, the Angkor kingdom wielded immense power over the 9th to 15th centuries. The Angkor kings constructed magnificent ornate stone temples (exemplified by the World Heritage-listed Angkor Wat) and stone sculptures depicting the world of Hindu and Buddhist gods. This exhibition follows the path from the time the region was divided into several smaller countries to the age of prosperity in which Angkor Wat, worthy of being called a paradise to which gods descended, was constructed, through the elegant sculptured art of this period. In addition, the exhibition will take you on a journey through the world of rich art and history of Indochina; as well as the cluster of pre and post Angkor Wat ruins. The exhibition features contemporaneous sculpture from Myanmar and Thailand.

We are giving away five sets of two tickets to this exhibition. To win be one of the first 5 people to email us at:
