    Measurements Height 32cm/13"

    An antique Khmer style bronze Apsara or Heavenly angel torso in the Angkor Wat style.

    The Apsara is a female spirit of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist mythology a celestial nymph or celestial maiden.

    The celestial dancers of Cambodia, are revered figures in Khmer culture, embodying the grace, beauty, and spirituality that define the artistic and religious traditions of the region. These celestial beings, depicted in intricate carvings and dance performances, have captivated the world with their elegance and symbolism.

    Apsaras are beautiful, supernatural female beings. They are youthful and elegant, and superb in the art of dancing. They are often the wives of the Gandharvas, the court musicians of Indra. They dance to the music made by the Gandharvas, usually in the palaces of the gods, entertain and sometimes seduce gods and men. As caretakers of fallen heroes, they may be compared to the valkyries of Norse mythology.

    As etherial beings who inhabit the skies, and are often depicted taking flight, or at service of a god, they may be compared to Angels. Apsaras are said to be able to change their shape at will, and rule over the fortunes of gaming and gambling. They are also associated with fertility rites.

    The most iconic representations of Apsaras can be found in the ancient temples of Angkor, notably Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. These temples, constructed during the Khmer Empire's zenith in the 12th century, are adorned with thousands of intricate Apsara carvings. These exquisite depictions adorn temple walls, pillars, and lintels, celebrating the divine beauty and grace of these celestial dancers.

    The Apsara carvings at Angkor are not only ornamental but also spiritually significant. They serve as a bridge between the earthly and heavenly realms, reminding worshippers of the profound connection between the sacred and the profane.

    The Apsara of Cambodia, celestial dancers of unparalleled grace and beauty, stand as guardians of Khmer culture and spirituality.

    From the majestic carvings of Angkor to the elegant performances on the modern stage, the Apsara continue to enchant and inspire, reminding us of the enduring power of art and spirituality to transcend time and connect us with the divine.

    Their legacy serves as a testament to Cambodia's rich cultural heritage and its unwavering commitment to preserving the traditions that define its identity.

    The Apsara is mounted on a wood base.

Beautiful. I received the Buddha yesterday in the midst of a TREMENDOUS thunderstorm, and it was perfectly dry and nice. (Not only your plastic covering worked, but DHL was nice enough to put the entire box int a huge plastic bag.) Many thanks.

We received the reclining Buddha and we love it! Thanks again!

It is an amazing "museum quality" antique bronze!!! For a 19th century bronze antique, I believe the Newark, NJ Museum may express interest if I show them. However, they will never get it and I will have it in my collection for posterity. We will be doing much more business in the foreseeable future, count on it!!!
