The art of wood sculpture goes back to the glorious epoch of the Khmer
empire and the monumental constructions that gave rise to the Angkor
temples. Our artisans have inherited patience and meticulousness from
their ancestors in the trade. They have learned to capture the
movements used in olden times and master the traditional tools in order
adapt to their personal lines of work.
This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the
artists of Cambodia.
