CAMBODIAN INSIGHTS

Part Three

Crocodile banners accompany a ceremonial sand ’mountain’. Udong, Cambodia.

If textiles could talk:  Cambodian cultural events visualized in silk by Gill Green

This presentation explores Cambodian culture through its antique textiles. It features those created specifically to be worn at marriages and Buddhist monks’ ordination ceremonies, events such as funerals, cremations and the annual water festival when spirits of the dead are returned to their underworld homes. These textiles appear not to have been worn but to have functioned as visualisations or records of events which persist to the present day.

Gill Green is the author of Traditional Textiles of Cambodia (2003) and Pictorial Cambodian Textiles (2008).
