The Glazed Elephant: Ceramic Traditions In Cambodia

Exhibition Website

Apr 15 2017 - Jul 15 2018

Water-pouring elephants; lime pots shaped like birds, rabbits, and lions; bottles with human faces and hands folded in reverence: these vessels feature in the ceramic traditions of the Angkor kingdom (802–1431). 

The Glazed Elephant explores these unconventional forms, their supposed functions, and the people who made and used them during this famous period in Cambodia’s history.
