Note "A range of sacred Khmer bronze images appeared during the third quarter of the first millennium CE unlike anything previously produced in the Kingdom of Cambodia. This cultural explosion developed during an elegant and glittering period of commerce and diplomacy in a Southeast Asian world related economically by trade and spiritually by faith. In Khmer Bronzes: New Interpretations of the Past, the authors explore this flowering of Khmer sacred art."--Publisher's description
