khmer Artifacts

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Do they have documented evidence of provenance?

It means can you prove that they are not stolen. "Provenance could be described as an immutable audit trail of ownership & location as it changes over time." Do not take his as a personal attack, it is something any reputable buyer would need, think of it as the title to the car you are trying to sell or say the deed to the "Brooklyn Bridge". Without provenance, it is likely a forgery, lotted or stolen property.

I suggest you read "The forgery, looting and illicit trading of antiquities.." https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/2bf1/a ... 1c9048.pdf

Buying stolen Khmer artefacts is on the same level as stealing babies
or eating the local wildlife.

Well, maybe not quite as bad as the last one.

Then surely your "well to do" Khmer friend doesn't need your help fencing priceless Khmer artifacts on CEO to a bunch of strangers?!?

Is everything going alright, PIEMAN?

"Fresh sausage roll, sir? Priceless ancient Cambodian artifact?"

Only in the Kingdom.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
