The Glazed Elephant

(Saturday) (Monday)

April 15th  at the Freer|Sackler is the opening of exhibition The Glazed Elephant: Ceramic Traditions in Cambodia. Water-pouring elephants; lime pots shaped like birds, rabbits, and lions; bottles with human faces and hands folded in reverence: these vessels feature in the ceramic traditions of the Angkor kingdom (802–1431). The Glazed Elephant explores these unconventional forms, their supposed functions, and the people who made and used them during this famous period in Cambodia’s history.
