Khmer Woman, Poipet, Cambodia


Khmer Woman, Poipet, Cambodia , 2005
Photo Yoonki Kim

The image of the Cambodian woman has always been compared to the celestial goddesses on the walls of the great temples Angkor Wat. The pleasant smile and distant gaze serve as a paragon for Cambodian women. Apsara, as they are called, represent water and purity and the fluidity of the virtuous female.

This postcard was send from Singapore, Marque.
Thank you.
