Bunker, E. & Latchford, D: KHMER GOLD. Gifts for the Gods. Chicago, 2008. xix, 147 pp. Colour plates throughout. 30x21 cm. Cloth.
A groundbreaking study of the gold artefacts created by the Khmer people who founded Cambodia. The objects are from major public and private collections in Cambodia, Great Britain, Thailand and the United States. In addition to illustration and description of the gold objects, also examines the skill, craft and technology of the Khmer goldsmiths. A most welcome addition to the sparse literature on the subject.
