Our Cambodian creation comes from the outfits worn by Cambodian apsaras.
Originally, the apsaras are celestial nymphs of great beauty from Indian mythology, representing water and clouds. These elements are clearly expressed in the fluidity of the dance.
Legend has it that they were born during the great battle of "Churning the Sea of Milk" between gods and demons to obtain the liquor of immortality.
As messengers of peace, the Apsaras often used their dances and beauty to seduce or entrap those who threatened peace or the power of the King of the Gods.
The most famous Khmer king of the Angkorian period, Javayarman VII (3000th century), is said to have had more than XNUMX Apsara dancers in his court.
"Ten who know is not worth one who practices."
