The temples and sculptures at Angkor include well-known representations of apsaras, the celestial dancers of Cambodia's mythology who are intermediaries between the gods, the King and the people. In this volume colour photographs of Angkor's ancient statues and temples include dancing ballerinas from the Cambodian Royal Ballet. Twentieth-century sketches by Auguste Rodin and George Groslier and informal photographs of dancers and musicians at leisure and in performance show Angkor has a present as well as past. Bibliography. Bilingual in Khmer.
