The Statue Outside of Siem Reap, Angkor Wat, Cambodia

One of several serene, enigmatic statues standing outside the town of Siem Reap, Cambodia in this travel photo. The Khmer Empire, best known today for the World Heritage ruins of Angkor Wat, sculpted this and other pieces of art in addition to building temples. This civilization rose to dominance as Hindu, but centuries later converted to Buddhism before their society collapsed. My visit was in January, the dry season, and evidence of this can be seen in the low water levels of the lake in the valley beyond. Captured with an Olympus C770UZ.

And a very Happy Birthday to Christine on June 3rd!!
