Apsara, Angkor Wat, Angkor Temple Complex, Siem Reap, Cambodia

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 .
