Images of The Gods by Vittorio Roveda, with DVD

Khmer Mythology in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand

An encyclopedic survey of the mythology and motifs of Khmer art, with over 2,400 colour images in text and on included DVD.

This massive and comprehensive volume is the culminating publishing event of the author's lengthy and meticulous researches into Khmer mythology, its messages, and meanings. From around 800 to 1300, the Khmer empire stretched across a vast area of mainland Southeast Asia; its powerful rulers built magnificent temples to glorify their reigns and adorned them with carved stonework of immense size, complexity, and artistry. In statuary myriad pediments and lintels, and many miles of bas-relief walls were portrayed the lives and legends of their Hindu gods and heroes, scenes from the lives of Buddha, and events of local history and folklore.

Vittorio Roveda holds doctorates in both geology and Asian art history, the latter a product of his work on the narrative techniques of Khmer bas-reliefs. A former teacher of Asian art history at the University of Singapore, Professor Roveda has previously published on the motifs and mythology of the Khmer stone carving the Angkor area; this monumental volume incorporates that work as well as his researches on the many great Khmer monuments flung across Cambodia, Thailand, and Laos.
