Artisan's d'Angkor Phnom Penh

Recently a beautiful new Artisans d' Angkor boutique opened in the old district in front of the Post Office. This fantastic store is over 3 levels and has the same selection as their Siem Reap boutique. Staff speak Khmer, French and English, are extremely helpful and once again there is no pressure to buy.

My purchase here was a head of the female Orant carved in Teak. The price was US$69. The Orants are based on the famous Adorned Orant of Angkor Wat which is in the National Museum in Phnom Penh.

Orant's are very compassionate beings who are assistants to Buddha. By joining their hands they make a greeting gesture and their kneeling position expresses humility.
