Built in the 12th Century, Angkor Wat is the largest Temple in the world, located in Cambodia near Siem Reap. The ruins of this Temple are still a major attraction to tourists visiting Cambodia. The Temple had fallen into many hands and religions since its creation.

In this poster we are shown the view of the priests and dancers in the entrance of the temple. George Groslier (1887-1945), the designer of this image, was a French polymath who, through his work as a painter, writer, historian, archaeologist, ethnologist, architect, photographer and curator, illuminated, and worked to preserve, the arts, culture and history of the Khmer Empire of Cambodia. Born in Phnom Penh to a French civil servant - he was the first French child ever born in Cambodia. He opened the first archeological museum in Phnom-Pen and was during all his life the protector of the Angkor temples. This is an extremely rare poster before the addition of text that was finely printed in stone-lithography in 1911.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
