Various forms in the abstract representation of the divine in Cambodia

Guest speaker: Dr Ang Chaulean

When used to conceive the divine under an anthropomorphic idol, a Khmer can be struck by the absence of any material representation among the ethnic peoples of the north-east of Cambodia. Then, considering attentively some types of spirits among the Khmer themselves, one realizes that, they also participate to some kind of abstract representation, although in a lesser degree.

Free entry. All are welcome.
