This is a gallery of Original Postcard Art done by the kids of ODA, Siem Reap, Cambodia.

For our first collaboration I asked the kids to paint the temples of Angkor and surrounding area, near their home, which is in the Angkor Archeological Park, in the village of Sra Srang.

Nothing compares to the wondrous beauty of Angkor and its surrounding temples, they are the jewels in Cambodia's crown and formed an integral part of the Khmer Empire that spanned 500 yearsfrom 802-1327 AD. The sublime beauty of Angkor Wat, the giant faces of Bayon and the jungle clad temple of Tha Prom are all captured here in these evocative watercolor paintings, with peaceful Buddhas and celestial Apsara dancers.
