Cambodia: Angkor Wat – Apsara Sculptures

One of the most mindblowing images at Angkor Wat are nearly life size females sculptures all around the temples – there are 1796 of them, carved on the walls, doorways, hallways, and pillars. In Hindu mythology, Apsaras are heavenly beings known for their beauty and grace, celestial nymphs who entertain the gods with their performances. Each Apsara carving at Angkor Wat is unique in its pose and design, each seemingly with ideal female proportions, 90-60-90 of sorts of the prehistoric times. They all wear ornate and elaborate traditional Khmer costumes, and have insane hair designs and decorations.
