After the success of last year’s romantic Christmas tree, Artisans Angkor has carried on its partnership with Sofitel Phokeethra Phnom Penh by designing a new “tree” which is currently displayed in the majestic entrance hall of the luxury hotel.

In the form of a luminous golden spiral, the Christmas Spirit has come to Cambodia to enchant children of all ages and cultures. It whirls around a baby elephant and magically infuses it with the promise of growing into the traditional Cambodian symbol of strength and serenity.

Originally made from wood, the elephant which forms the central part of the piece of art has come to life thanks to the dedicated efforts of artisans who spent four full months carving its shape and applying 14 layers of paints using the traditional lacquering techniques to give it its Christmas red. Finally, golden leaves were applied to enhance the magic.
