Beyond Angkor: Cambodian Sculpture from Banteay Chhmar

Exhibition Website

Oct 14 2017 - Mar 25 2018

This exhibition features an unprecedented loan from the National Museum of Cambodia of a section from the sculpted enclosure wall of the great royal temple at Banteay Chhmar. Intricately carved in low relief, the wall depicts a unique, larger-than-life image of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Ten-Armed Lokeshvara, surrounded by devotees. Complementing the loan of the bas relief from Banteay Chhmar, works from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s renowned collection of Cambodian art from the time of Jayavarman 7th will be on view, contextualized by photographs of the site by Jaroslav Poncar and digital reconstructions by Olivier Cunin.
