Heaven and Empire: Khmer Bronzes from the 9th to the 15th Centuries

     
   
      

This survey features some of the world’s finest examples of the art of the lost wax method of bronze casting. The superb artists of the Khmer Empire of ancient Cambodia blended the two greatest influences of their time, Hinduism and Buddhism, to create bronze images that reflected the religious, mystical, and sensual beauty of this culture. The text features bronzes from the collections of the Phnom Penh Royal Museum of Fine Art, The National Museum Bangkok, The National Museum Phimai, and from private collections, many never before published. The volume is a must for collectors, antique dealers, art historians, libraries, and museums as well as those interested in learning about this magnificent art form of the Khmer Empire.
