Fine Art Image of the east gate of Ta Som Temple in Angkor Wat complex, taken in northern Cambodia.

The most seen trees in Cambodia's Angkor Wat complex are Strangler Fig trees, known as Banyan trees. The Strangler Fig tree (Ficus gibbosa) has a greater mass of thinner, smoother grey roots. You can see it overgrowing the Khmer architecture of Angkor Archaeological Site, such as at the third eastern gate of Ta Som Temple. The trees have grown down through the blocks that make up the gopura (entrance way) and into the ground.

The Banyan Tree is mentioned in many ancient Indian texts and scriptures, representing the divine creator and symbolizing longevity. In Hindu mythology, the tree is believed to provide the fulfillment of wishes and provide material gains.

High quality print available in 8" x 12" OR 12" x 18" on Lustre OR Matte black & white paper.

My original photographs are printed in a professional photography lab. You have the choice of :

• Lustre silver halide professional paper. It has a silver gelatin-based emulsion with an added coating for better reproduction. It provides exceptionally pure, brilliant whites. Its lustre surface means worry-free manipulation and excellent image durability.


• Hahnemühle cold pressed "NATURAL" Matte 340 gsm paper (100 % cotton, white, acid free, long conservation time, museum quality paper). The paper and the inks are archive quality. According to the manufacturer, the lifespan of a photo is more than 150 years.

The photograph is hand signed on the back. Ready to frame, this art work will make a wonderful addition to your home or office.
