Cambodian Art

During the Khmer Rouge rule, Cambodian culture was essentially destroyed, but the traditional arts are now seeing a revival.  Some of the traditional arts being revived are those of textiles, silverwork, woodcarving, stone sculpture and painting.

Cotton is used to weave krama, a rectangular scarf with colorful checks and stripes and the sampot.  Sampots are skirts for women and those made with silk usually have colorful patterns with silk or gold threads weaved throughout.

Metal work was revived in the early 20th century by the French in Cambodia.  Animal-shaped boxes that hold betel, a stimulant and tonic, were popular items that silversmiths produced.
