Preah Bot: Buddhist painted scrolls in Cambodia

By Vittorio Roveda & Sothon Yem

Graduallly fading in disuse, ignored by art histrians and museums, the beautifully painted Buddhist scrolls called preah bot in Cambodia are the subjecct of this book by the two authors of Buddhist Painting of Cambodia. Preah Bots have been produced since the end of the 19th century as a personal and intimate manifestation of the faith of pious Cambodian lay people, and are an important element of the country's rich Buddhist cultural heritage. A large variety of cloths are illustrated, showing events from the life of the Buddha and his previous lives narrated in the Jataka tales. Particular emphasis has been paid to the Vessantara Jataka, the most popular of all Jatakas, detailing both its Pali version and previously unknown Khmer versions. This important book with a summary in Khmer is the first attempt to document the art and meaning of preah bot in Cambodian society at a time when the production of such cloths for religious use is gradually disappearing and being replaced by commercial production for tourists or art collectors.
