There are three main parts to this book. The first deals with the making of images of gods and their exposition/deployment into a visual narrative. In the second part of the book, the divine protagonists of myths and legends are described and illustrated as they appear in temples at different locations throughout the Khmer empire. The third part of the book attempts to verify the impact of Khmer visual narrative on the indigenous cultures of Thailand. --introd.
