Wall Art

This is a featured wall art which I've seen from the hotel lobby when we went to a KTV bar over the weekend. This wall art is very common here in Cambodia. If I'm not mistaken, I think this is called Apsara. A Khmer art style which best describes the country and it's people. If you go and visit Cambodia, you will find a variety of Apsara Khmer wall art displayed mostly on public places and in most hotels and traditional restaurants. Angkor Wat which is a famous tourist destination in Cambodia has over 1,500 Apsara images carved in sand stone. I've never been to Angkor Wat yet but will be there very soon especially that my flight now back home will probably be via the Siem Riep-Manila route. I'm looking forward to see more of this Khmer wall art which are truly remarkable and meaningful.
