Siem Reap, Cambodia

Angkor Wat

Above is from within Angkor Wat, and below are some views from Angkor Thom.

Angkor Thom

I came to Cambodia to see these heads. They exist within an ancient Khmer city, dating from the 12th century, and roughly nine square miles in size. The faces themselves are taller than the average person, and there are hundreds of them.

And folks, if there was any lasting question of whether size matters? It does. These great stone faces are powerful presences indeed. And calming. Each are different and they vary slightly in size as well. They often faced in four directions on the top of a tower, and not necessarily in a symmetrical fashion. They were sometimes far above and sometimes at eye level.
