Wood Carving with a Master Craftsman

Wood Carving is an art that has been practiced all over the world but very avidly in Southeast Asia where great pieces of woodwork have been crafted throughout the ages. Siem Reap was a center of arts for many years during the Angkor Empire, with sculptures of Apsara, Angkor tales and other stories regularly adorning the royal compounds. Today, these very same sculptures are made by craftsmen and placed in hotels all over Siem Reap.
