Under the reign of Jayavarman VII,  one of the greatest rulers of Cambodia, Khmer art was characterized by an important production of putative portraits of the King as the Bodhisattva of the compassion. At the end of the XIIth century, this fascination for the image led to the carving of numerous effigies widespread all over the Kingdom, which brought to the extreme “the art of the portrait” initiated by his predecessors.
