The history of Cambodian art stretches back centuries to ancient crafts. Traditional Cambodian arts and crafts include textiles, non-textile weaving, silversmithing, stone carving, lacquerware, ceramics and Painting-making.The height of Khmer art occurred during the Angkor period; much of the era's stone carving and architecture survives to the present, most of them representing the important divinities of both Hinduism and Buddhism. In addition, there are objects used in religious ceremonies as well as household utensils. Art and crafts were generally produced either by rural non-specialists for practical use or by skilled artists producing works for the Royal Palace.
With serene beauty of our lovely statues and painting are handcrafted and as such unique. As our entire piece, it is important to note that the image shown here is a very closed of the actual piece that will be shipped. In terms of overall size, design and appearance. However, the applied patina and deliberate wear shown on the piece will slightly differ from that shown in the image.
Our ability to purchase remarkable objects, such as this, direct from local villages and workshops ensures that much needed funds are invested in the local community and not consumed by profiteering middlemen.
We hope to delight with all orders!!!
