Photographer's Note

Or what is commonly thought to represent, the omni-presence of King Jayavarman VII.

There are more then 200 faces, such as this to be found at the Bayon alone.

Jayavarman VII was born around 1120 or 1125, son of King Dharanindravarman II and queen Sri Jayarajacudamani.

He was one of the most forceful and productive kings of the Khmer Empire of Angkor. He expanded the empire to its greatest territorial extent and engaged in a building program that yielded numerous temple, highways, rest houses, and hospitals.

During his reign, the King built 102 hospitals, which he dispersed throughout his kingdom. Those hospitals were built in an attempt to improve conditions of the King's subject.

Jayavarman succeeded during his lifetime in creating a legacy that few monarchs in Khmer history have been able to equal. He was more than 90 years old when he died in around 1215.
