3950 hours…

That’s the number of hours that were necessary to produce by hand this majestic lacquered folding screen called ‘The Romance of Rama & Sita’. It is a truly unique piece in Artisans Angkor’s collection as it is an original creation that will not be reproduced. Working on this masterpiece was quite demanding: 3950 hours of hand production represents over one year and a half of work!

The whole painting which is 180cm high and 210cm wide, was totally made by hand and finished with real gold leaves. It depicts a romantic scene inspired by the Ramayana, one of the great Hindu epics: Rama is helping his wife Sita to fall asleep by playing music in collaboration with Devadas.
