Use of bronze-casting began in Cambodia sometime between 1,500 and 1,000 BCE. It is widely assumed that this technology was introduced to Southeast Asia through contact with the Chinese, but the possibility of independent development of bronze casting in Southeast Asia has yet to be conclusively ruled out. Whatever the case, bronze-casting had become a major industry throughout mainland Southeast Asia by 500 CE - at which time bronze was used to make a wide range of tools, weapons, ritual objects and ornaments.

After Indian political and religious ideas began permeating Cambodia (around the time of Christ), a tradition of casting bronze Hindu and Buddhist divinities emerged. This tradition reached its pinnacle of output and skill during the Angkor period and  demonstrates the level of mastery which Khmer bronze artists achieved.

***
Symbol of life in China, protective animal in Indonesia, guardian of swords in Japan, evil and cunning in Europe, the dragon is found in many myths and legends. Usually, eastern dragons, Chinese dragons are beneficial beings that bring good luck. In Western mythologies, such as Greek or Celtic, the dragon is an embodiment of evil. Also in Persian mythology the dragon is evil (see Zahhak). In the mythologies of the Native Americans, but also in East Asia, they are seen as the primary forces of nature and the universe. They are associated with wisdom - they are smarter than humans - and with longevity. They can also have magical and supernatural powers and are representatives of the aquatic environment. They personify water, wells, rains and rivers. Some cultures endow dragons with the gift of speech.
