Centuries ago, a brilliant civilization flourished in the valleys and plains of what is now Cambodia. The Khmer culture created a remarkable artistic legacy, boldly expressive in form yet delicate in its sensibility. The most famous Khmer monument is the vast temple complex at Angkor Wat, but works in bronze are equally remarkable in their power. This exquisite ritual bell was created to be rung during ceremonies. Its weight and beauty suggests it is the product of a royal workshop. Though the clapper is now missing, when we shake it we can easily imagine its rich tones ringing out across the ancient capital of Khmer. Graceful and powerful at once, it evokes the wealth and splendor of a vanished world. - (FZ.249)
