Stone carving in Cambodia goes back to the time of the Khmer empire and the construction of the Angkor temples. The sandstone used by our craftsmen comes from the Northeast part of Cambodia, for the most part. Our young artistans have learnt to capture the meticulous and patient passion of their ancestors, using the same techniques and movements to create our wide array of hand crafted goods.

First the stone is roughly hewn to create a base shape, as close to the final product as possible. Then, using ancestral techniques passed down from generation to generation, the artisan begins to sculpt the statue, giving it detail and decoration.

This statue of a female form was carved in sandstone by one of our artisans in our workshops in Cambodia. It is a tribute to the goddess Laksmy Lakshmi, the goddess of good fortune in Hindu and Buddhist cultures, and Vishnu's companion throughout his reincarnations.
