An extensive network of canals are easily discerned on many maps of Greater Angkor. As well as moving vast quantities of water around the capital, canals were essential for travel and transportation. Drawing upon historical photography and archaeological research, this scene imagines a view down an Angkorian canal lined with houses raised on bamboo stilts.
