In far Cambodia, where the Khmer kings built their mighty temples and vanished from the earth with their millions of subjects hundreds of years ago, leaving no trace upon the written pages of... More > history, are secrets yet undivulged to man, jungles that even natives never enter. Into such went Gordon King. What he found there you will find in the pages of this book: stupendous temples guarded by priests of the great god Siva, the Destroyer; kings and dancing girls and warriors in brass; tigers and elephants; enemies, friends, and—the Jungle Girl.

Devatas By Dennie Cody
Paperback: $42.10
Prints in 3-5 business days
A collection of photographs of the "Devatas", the stone carvings of the beautiful feminine divinities realistically rendered in 1,780 individual portraits on the walls of Angkor Wat in... More > Cambodia. These guardian angels were created almost a thousand years ago when this famous temple of the Khmer Empire was finished in 1150 AD. They engage the viewer with the charm of their ever-serene smile as well as the fresh vitality of their youthful figures with their bare torsos and the grace of their supple gestures with their slender fingers, holding a lotus or playing with a string of flowers. The Angkor Wat Devatas are the world's most extraordinary collection of royal portraits ever commissioned and surely the most profoundly feminine. We were captivated by their beauty and charisma from the first time we visited and have worked on gathering this collection of photographs for almost seventeen years. We believe that you will find the Devatas as charming as we do.< Less
