An apsara is a female spirit of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist mythology. Apsaras are a common motif on temples and other buildings throughout Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, and other parts of Southeast Asia. Often translated as nymph or muse, the depiction of apsaras differ in each culture. Dancing apsara in bas-relief decorate the walls of Angkor Wat, the largest temple (AD 1116–1150) in Angkor Archaeological Park, and the largest religious monument in the world .
Great light: creates a complete outline without odd highlights. In the Hindu mythology apsaras are often heavenly dancers.

It is true in Cambodia as well. In the 12th century, both Hinduism and Buddhism influenced the development and decoration of the city of Angkor and its buildings and temples.
