Wood Carving is an art that has been practiced all over the world but very avidly in SouthEast Asia where great pieces of woodwork are crafted through out the ages to honour religion in this part of the world. Siem Reap has been the centre of arts for many years as it was the centre of the Angkor Empire in the past, as such sculptures of Apsaras, Angkor tales and other stories are regularly made from wood to adorn the royal compounds. Today, these very same sculptures are made by craftsmen and placed in hotels everywhere in Siem Reap.
