Cleveland, OH (October 13, 2017) –Beyond Angkor: Cambodian Sculpture from Banteay Chhmar features an unprecedented loan from the National Museum of Cambodia consisting of a section of the 800-year-old sculpted enclosure wall of the great royal temple at Banteay Chhmar. Intricately carved, the wall depicts a larger-than-life image of the bodhisattva of compassion in the form of the 10-armed Lokeshvara, “Lord of the World,” surrounded by devotees.
What does the term "Jazz Age" evoke in your mind? Perhaps it conjures images of women in flapper dresses drinking gin rickeys and dancing the Charleston. Or maybe it’s an image of a Gatsby-esque character walking into a lavish home filled with Art Deco–style furniture. Whatever you imagine, there’s no denying that people have long been fascinated with America in the 1920s. Northeast Ohio was a Jazz Age epicenter. Signs of this era are visible in historic Cleveland architecture and neighborhoods, and even found in your own homes, attics, and photo albums.
