The Ronin Gallery is pleased to present Temple Relief Prints from Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Angkor Wat, built in the 12th century by Khmer King Suryavarman II, is the world’s largest religious monument and one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. These prints are made directly from centuries old bas-relief carvings that are currently closed to the public for conservation efforts. Printed with an attention to detail on hand-made rice papers, and using only natural vegetable dyes and gold they capture the essence of an ancient culture. Most of the rubbings portray the history and people of Khmer as well as Apsarasas or celestial dancers, who are considered one of the most beautiful maidens in paradise. Similar images can be found in the Kahin Center at Cornell University and the Kyoto Bunka Museum, Japan. Please take a moment to look through this special collection of the unique and truly mystical images of an ancient wonder of the world; Angkor Wat.
