    pair cambodian khmer apsara dancing figures

    Cambodia
    1970s

    Khmer classical dancers are often referred to as apsara dancers. During the Angkor period, dance was ritually performed at temples. The temple dancers came to be considered as apsaras, who served as entertainers and messengers to divinities. Dancers do not speak or sing; they dance with a slight smile and are never supposed to open their mouths. Hand gestures in Khmer classical dance are called kbach. These hand gestures form a sort of alphabet and represent various things from nature such as fruit, flowers, and leaves. They are used in different combinations, sometimes with accompanying foot movements, to convey different thoughts and concepts. Besides hand gestures are gestures which are more specific to their meaning, such as that which is used to represent laughing or flying.
