* Description from back cover: Sacred dance is not a performance but the expression of the Cambodian people's soul. It has survived all of the country's historical upheavals from the time of Angkor. For over fifteen years, French photographer Christophe Loviny has devoted himself to gathering signs of Cambodia's cultural renaissance. He lives in a village in the heart of the ancient city of Angkor, among the apsaras, the celestial dancers who are the traditional intermediaries between the gods. the king and simple folk.

From the stone statues that grace the corridors of Angkor Wat to the poised ballerinas of today's Cambodian Royal Ballet, sacred dance unifies a country whose name alone evokes the image of a dancer. Sketches and watercolours by Auguste Rodin and George Groslier complete this book, which contains all the keys essential to unraveling Cambodia's mystery.
