Khmer Temples of Angkor
Cambodia - 1966

Angkor is a region of Cambodia that served as the seat of the Khmer Empire, which flourished from the 9th to 13th centuries. The Angkorian period began in AD 802, when the Khmer Hindu monarch Jayavarman II declared himself a "universal monarch" and "god-king", until 1431, when Ayutthayan invaders sacked the Khmer capital.

The ruins of Angkor are located in amid forests and farmland near Siem Reap, and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The temples of the Angkor area number over one thousand, ranging in scale from nondescript piles of brick rubble scattered through rice fields to the magnificent Angkor Wat, the world's largest single religious monument. Many of the temples at Angkor have been restored, and together, they comprise the most significant site of Khmer architecture.

Stone carvings depict scenes from the Hindu mythology are exist in Angkor temples. The largest of them are exist in Angkor Wat, in which the epics of the Ramayana and the Churning of the Ocean Milk are represented on their long walls. Many Apsara statutes were also been engraved in the temple walls.

Paintings by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) exhibited in Liechtenstein Museum, Vienna, Austria, designed (after Rubens) by Karl Gessner, engraved by Alfred Fischer and issued by Liechtenstein on September 9, 1976 to mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of Rubens:

Three Music-making Angels (Detail):

Artist's sons Albert and Nicholas Rubens:

Erichthonius discovered by the daughters of Cecrops:

Athena visited the smith-god Hephaestus to request some weapons, but Hephaestus tried to seduce her. Athena fled, Hephaestus caught her and tried to rape her, but she fought him off. During the struggle, his semen fell on her thigh, and Athena, in disgust, wiped it away with a scrap of wool and flung it to the earth. As she fled, Erichthonius was born from the semen. Athena, wishing to raise the child in secret, placed him in a box.

Athena gave the box to the three daughters of Cecrops, the king of Athens, and warned them never to open it. Overcome with curiosity, they opened the box, which contained the infant and future-King, Erichthonius. The sisters were terrified by what they saw in the box: either a snake coiled around an infant, or an infant that was half-man and half-serpent. They went insane and threw themselves off the Acropolis.
