Description
The golden age of Cambodian culture was developed the kingdom of Angkor, a powerful and prosperous empire that flourished in northwestern Cambodia. The Angkor kingdom was historically Southeast Asia's largest contiguous empire controlled much territory in what is now Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Many temples from this period, like the Bayon and Angkor Wat are left as a reminder of the grandeur of Khmer arts and culture.The Khmer culture created a remarkable artistic legacy, boldly expressive in form yet delicate in its sensibility. 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. - (PH.0205)
