Hanuman Monkey

Hanuman (war monkey) is a god and devotee of Rama. Hanuman comes from Hindu mythology, and is frequently depicted in Cambodian art, including in many of the relief panels in Angkor Wat. Hindu mythological figures are often present in Cambodian art because of Indian influence on Cambodia. It has perfectly carved features and attire, carrying a trishula. It is rare to find a Hanuman figure with such detail in this condition.
