King serpent Muchilinda protecting Buddha Shakyamuni

This sculpture depicts the serpent king Muchilinda protecting the Buddha Shakyamuni from heavy rains.  Cambodian Marble Stone Art pieces are mostly provided by craftsmen trained in Pursat Province in Cambodia. Marble Khmer Art depict the splendor and nostalgia of Angkor Era.

There are numerous extant Cambodian images of this configuration because it was the focus of a cult during the reign of the Cambodian king Jayavarman VII, who ruled the Khmer empire from about 1181 to 1218. Although this scene had been depicted earlier in South and Southeast Asian art, it was the Khmer who popularized it. The reasons that Jayavarman chose to stress the Muchilinda Buddha remain speculative. Snakes were associated with healing, and perhaps because Jayavarman may have been lame, he emphasized healing, as indicated by his construction of hospitals throughout the kingdom.

Angkor Art (Khmer Art)

Marble carving in Cambodia is a tradition which dates back over a thousand years and won acclaim during the prosperous period of Angkor. Indeed, the Khmer Kingdom is blessed with abundant natural quarries, mainly located in the province of Pursat near the Tonle Sap. The precious stones originate from the Cardomom mountains. Pursat Province is the only region is found and therefore Pursat is very famous throughout the country for its marble product.

More than 30 percent of Pursat province’s residents carve their living out of the best quality marble (colored blue, green, red and black) in Cambodia, according authorities of marble carving department in the museum of Pursat province. Since marble is abundant and more easily extracted in Pursat than in other areas of Cambodia, marble carving is a popular business for residents. This art originated during the French colonization of Cambodia, when marble was first discovered in Krovanh district. As statues must be aesthetically pleasing and of high quality to attract buyers, a carving school has been founded to support over 300 students who improve the best carving techniques.

The high quality stone is then transported toward Phnom Penh to be carved by local sculptors who perpetuate the style and the know-how of the Angkorian period. Phnom Penh craftsmen have developed from the ambitious belief that it is possible to revive ancient Khmer Arts & Crafts while improving the lives of thousands of people living in rural areas. By developing high quality products that express the dynamism of the Khmer culture, Phnom Penh craftsmen strive to be a timeless showcase for Cambodian crafts with pieces inspired by Angkor heritage as well as fashionable handmade clothing and decorative items that can suit contemporary lifestyles.

The pieces of art acquired by Rock Around Asia have been selected for their quality and their strong link to Khmer traditions. Some are inspired by Angkorian themes like the reighn of King Jayavarman VII and some are unique pieces, ordered by us. All of them have been carefully controlled and selected in order to build one of the finest collection of contemporary Khmer sculptures.
