This exhibition, called 'Old Stories Revived - New Cambodian Pidan', just opened at Cambodia's National Museum in Phnom Penh and features a dozen or so recently woven 'pidan'. These are the justly famous sacred silk textiles used as canopies or backdrops for special Buddhist ceremonies. This collection was woven under the auspices of CYK, a Japanese NGO and includes some very fine pieces. I got a sneak preview when I was in PP recently, prior to the exhibition opening. The pieces should be up for a month or so.
