photoblog image On the Cliff #2

On the Cliff #2

[Continued from yesterday]...the adventurous tourist can get a very close encounter with an extremely rare 1000 years old khmer carving...the actual cliff-face is, it seems,  no-man's-land that belongs to neither country! These artworks can be visited only from Thailand.

Jolies sculptures taillées à  même la pierre.
Ray: Pour autant que je sache, Martine, il n'y a pas d'autres exemples dans tout l'ancien royaume Khmer.

It's amazing to think those carvings have been there for all that time isn't it. They seem hardly eroded at all
Ray: I think there were once a row of 6 or 7 figures, Chris...slowly they are vanishing.

They are incredible and are in remarkably good condition for their age. Its good that they can be visited without any national difficulty.
Ray: I think they are amazing art, Alan. The Cambodians have no way of getting to this place except via Thailand...sort of Tit-for-Tat silliness, I suppose.

Well worth visiting ...the hues are tremendous.
Ray: Yes...lovely art in a fine gallery, Richard.
Impressionnant travail de sculpture , ta deuxième photo est très belle
Ray: Merci, Claudine.
They are a wonderful discovery Ray. A shame that petty squabbling means only one country has access to them
Ray: Wonderful art, Bill...and should be available to Khmer Heritage people on both sides of the border.
Well worth the climb down and up those steps. They are amazing to still be there after all that time.
Ray: Yes...I found them to be rather special, Brian.
It astounds me that that much detail is still visible.
Ray: Rain water is seeping over them, and I do not know if this helps, Mary.
