About This Book

Gods of Angkor: Bronzes from the National Museum of Cambodia celebrates the accomplishments of Khmer bronze casters and their perfection of skill and aesthetic expression over nearly two millennia. A key focus of the book and exhibition is the museum's Metals Conservation Laboratory, which was designed and equipped with guidance from the Freer and Sackler Galleries' Department of Conservation and Scientific Research. Highlights include the first project to be undertaken by the new laboratory - the treatment of an important cache of seven early Buddhist bronze images, including two works from China, that vividly represent the interactions of artistic styles and religious traditions in Cambodia in the sixth and seventh centuries. Discovered in 2006, the seven newly conserved images will be presented outside Cambodia for the first time in the Gods of Angkor exhibition.
