Item description for The Treasures of Angkor: Cultural Travel Guide (Rizzoli Art Guide) by Marilia Albanese...

Angkor, at the heart of the Khmer empire, is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. Stretching over hundreds of square miles, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. These include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its ornate sculptural decorations. Based on the most recent archaeological findings, this essential guidebook explains the development of the civilization's strongly symbolic art. With its concise, insightful text, superb photographs, and handy, portable format, this guidebook is an essential resource for students, art and archaeology enthusiasts, and the many travelers to Cambodia each year.
