If You Wish To Move Mountains, You Must Begin By Moving Stones
The ancient Khmer Empire was built on the back of the noble elephant. It was used extensively in wars, in religious processions and in the construction of the Empire’s many temples. More than 6,000 elephants were used to build Angkor Wat alone. Without the elephants to move the massive sandstones sourced from the Kulen Mountains, it would have been far more difficult to build the monuments that still impress visitors to this very day. (Temples referenced from top to bottom – Ta Prohm, Bayon, Terrace of the Elephants, Banteay Srei and Angkor Wat.)

Joshua is a Singapore born artist now based in Phnom Penh. Ever since he successfully sold the only copy of his first original hand-drawn comic-book The Adventures of Hercules and Odysseus to his mother for a meal at the age of nine, Joshua Chiang has been filled with an unquenchable belief that he will achieve greatness in the realm of visual storytelling. In 2017, Joshua started Candid Cambodia, a collection of illustrations about what’s peculiar in Cambodia. He draws his inspiration from the day to day happenings in the streets of Phnom Penh. Joshua is probably most well-known in Cambodia for his pile-up art illustration of a motordop ferrying a large number of passengers and much more, capturing the spirit of anything goes in this country.
