Cambodian Memories V - Carvings

These are some of the amazing carvings I saw at the temples. I think they speak for themselves--but how about that dinosaur??? It was rather teeny and tucked away--my guide pointed it out. Remember, these were constructed a little over a thousand years ago. ??? I thought the birth scene was interesting, too. Then, my favorites--the Apsara--the nymphs who acted as cheerleaders in the creation battle. In the carvings each Apsara, and there are a gazillion, has different facial features, different hair do's, skirts, and accessories. I thought they were charming.
