Dreams ~ Girl At Angkor Wat

I was on an art trip to Siem Reap when I finally found time to climb to the top of the main temple complex where the architecture was really beautiful and the views fantastic. There I found this young Cambodian girl in a sarong sitting nonchalently, oblivious to the going-ons around her, not to mention the hoards of tourists. Unlike other children, she has a quality of enigma, dignity and air wise beyond her years. In another country, another place, in different circumstances, she could have been a blossoming star even..
There she sat twirling her kerchief, as if pondering her dreams and what could have been. Hence the title for this poignant piece.
