An Elaborate and Collective Fusion Art
The Angkorian Mandala is a contemporaneous form of graphic art expression descended from a universal tradition that is almost as old as humanity. Greetings to my predecessors, designing Mandalas from all latitudes and ages.
It fits within the natural and logical development of the virtual reconstruction work that I have undertaken for over
ten years. It focuses on Angkorian monuments. All featured temples are genuine and recreated volumes and colours are based on sound sources that are in agreement with archaeologists. The latter, like me, work on the study and restoration of this valuable heritage. They are mainly specialists from the French School of Asian Studies (Ecole Française d’Extrême Orient, EFEO) that have worked for more than one century and published high-level papers on this topic. I have also received constant and enthusiastic support from academics from the University of Sydney.
I would specially like to express my gratitude to Pascal Royère, Dominique Soutif, Christophe Pottier,Jean Baptiste
Chevance, Eric LLopis, Pierre Baty, Armand Debas at the EFEO, Tom Chandler, Damian Evans and Martin Polkginhorne for the Australians … Not forgetting the long list of my masters at INALCO.
