The exhibition ‘Smile of Khmer: Cambodian Ancient Cultural Relics and Art’ are on display at the Guangdong Museum in Guangzhou until June 21. The treasures from the National Museum of Cambodia mostly highlight large sandstone statues - typical symbols of classical Buddhist Art of Southeast Asia.



There are more than 80 original cultural relics from Cambodia, and the majority of the artifacts are from the Angkor period, the heyday of ancient Khmer culture. There are also ancestral temple architectures, representing the complex religious systems and history of Cambodia.
