Exhibition: "Living Angkor"

Spectacular Angkor Wat in North Central Cambodia is one of the great
monuments of the world. This exhibition will focus on the living
aspects and continuity of culture found in Angkor and its environs
today. For many Cambodians the monuments of Angkor are the continuous
link to ancient Khmer culture despite the horrible devastation during
the "killing fields" period, 1975-79.The exhibition will feature
several 13th and 14th century sculptures and will also depict how these
are sometimes transformed into modern Buddhist worship.  Motifs found
in traditional textiles, puppets, and masks that are found within the
13th century friezes will be displayed.  Images by National Geographic
photographer Paul Chesley will depict both the monuments and the
contemporary Cambodian people.
