Stock Description


The beauty of the Khmer legacy in Thailand is presented here for the first time. In recent years, the Khmer temples of Thailand have been the focus of a major program of excavation and restoration. Many hitherto unpublished masterpieces of architecture, decorative carving, and statuary are displayed in their newly restored state, evocatively photographed by Michael Freeman and authoritatively discussed by Elizabeth Moore and Smitthi Siribhadra. Never before have all the major Khmer sites been collected with their artifacts into one volume. It is possible for the first time to appreciate the unique splendor of the Khmer civilization in Thailand, offering artistic and architectural inspiration to all succeeding generations.
