The Terrace of the Leper King is one of the most mysterious monuments of Angkor Thom, the ancient Royal capital of Cambodia. It consists of a succession of sculpted walls, some of which are concealed by other parts of walls. This fact has been interpreted in numerous ways: the hidden part may allude to the deities of the underworld or, in a more practical way, the terrace may have been used for royal cremations. The front of the Terrace overlooking the Royal Square is decorated with various sorts of sea creatures, nagas and divine characters.
These Devata reliefs were finely carved following the same method as the Angkorian period.
Our artisans hand carved this bas-relief from a block of sandstone, which is the same material which was used to build the Angkor temples several hundred years ago.
This sandstone sculpture can be displayed outside but it cannot be exposed to long-lasting frost. You can clean this piece with clear water but you should avoid contact with oil products to prevent grease stains.
