Forbes Lecture at the Freer on The Sculpture Workshops of Angkor
Sunday, September 23rd

"Angkorian sculpture is universally recognized for its simplicity, detail, and masterful technical execution. Dr. Martin Polkinghorne, director of the University of Sydney Robert Christie Research Centre in Siem Reap, Cambodia, discusses archaeological excavations at two workshops. The results reveal much about the production, consistency, and evolution of Angkorian sculpture."
