HANUMAN

Le singe blanc, allié de Râma dans sa lutte contre Râvana et l’armée des géants, est resté le symbole de l’intelligence et du dévouement au service d’une juste cause. Ses aventures ont fourni un grand thème d’inspiration aux artistes anonymes dont les fresques couvrent les murs du cloître de Vat Preah Morokot au Palais Royal.

L’oiseau solaire ennemi des Nagas et monture de Vishnu est l’un des grands thèmes décoratifs de l’art khmer traditionnel. On le trouvait déjà dans les grandes compositions épiques des bas-reliefs d’Angkor Vat, mais il prit une importance grandissante dans l’art post-angkorien et moderne. ••
The solar bird enemy of the Naga and mount of Vishnu is one of the great decorative themes of traditional Khmer art. It was already to be found in the great epic compositions of the bas-reliefs of Angkor Wat, but it became of great importance in post-Angkorian and modern art.
