Khmer ‘Sampot Chawng Kbun’
Darkly beautiful, this fine piece has an attractive allover pattern of diamonds surrounded by a lattice with connecting swastika-like forms. Such motifs are used by Hindus, as well as in China, and are evidence of the varied influences in Khmer art and culture. Two attractive and complimentary borders flank the central field and the ends are a dark wine color, each punctuated with three lines of weft patterned bands. Condition is excellent, with only one small hole.
