Cambodian Cultural Heritage: Pre-Angkor to Today

Asian Art Association & Curator's Circle Lecture Series

Dr. Sovath Bong, archaeologist and President of the Royal University of Fine Arts, Kingdom of Cambodia, invites us to explore the wonders of Cambodia’s past with him.

Archaeological research in Cambodia began in the late 19th century, revealing the hidden treasure of now-famous Angkor Wat, the largest religious site in the world. Much of the pre-Angkor (before 1100 CE) objects recovered, such as statuary of Vishnu, Krishna, Balarāma, and Ganesha expressed a strong Indian influence.

Thousands of wonderful artifacts have been recovered and are treasured cultural and World Heritage objects conserved with care today.

Doors open at 6 pm.

The lecture and reception following are free, but reservations are requested. Call 720-913-0130.
