Forgotten Workshop of Artist Dy Proeung at Roluos Village Cambodia

We visited a small Village called Roluos to see 4 rarely visited 9th Century Angkor era temples. While we were there we stumbled across the workshop of Dy Proeung, a famous Cambodian Artist with an amazing story.

Across from Preah Ko Temple in the Roluos Temple group (not at Angkor Wat Complex) is the forgotten workshop of an amazing Artisan Sculptor who created beautiful replica art of the ancient Angkor Temples and reliefs. It was sad but also seemed somewhat fitting that the replicas of the ruins were also now in ruins.
