About this event
Professor Ashley Thompson - Hiram W Woodward Chair of Southeast Asian Art, SOAS University of London
This talk will examine the reclining Buddha and Vishnu figures sculpted into the landscape of Angkor’s Kulen Mountains as embodying a site-specific re-birthing of the world. The talk is part of a book project entitled 'The Work of Buddhist Art: Reinventions of Angkor' which has benefited from the generous support of the Robert N. Ho Foundation.
