A Naga head at Prasat Phanom Rung in Buriram
|Naga head at Prasat Phanom Rung in Buriram|
What a beautiful piece of ancient art! As the Greater Khmer Kingdom once stretched out over what we now call North-East Thailand there are many ancient Khmer ruins to be found. And they are an example of the high standard of cultivation and technical knowledge that was in South-East Asia already hundreds of years ago. Imagine how they build those temples out of huge rocks that had to be transported many km's. Imagine the art and hard work to make this kind of Naga head.
