Inner temple hallway lined with stone statues including Buddha at Angkor Wat
An arched inner temple hallway at Angkor Wat is lined with stone statues including a tall Buddha, seen towards the middle here. Several of the statues, even a headless one towards the front, are wrapped diagonally across their chests with gold or orange sashes.
Throughout Southeast Asia, carved stone or wood deity and ancestor statues often were (and are) dressed with real clothes that are replaced periodically at ritual events.
