Cambodian shadow theater has a long history, dating back over a thousand years to early Angkorian times. It is one of the most revered and loved art forms in the country, but, like many other cultural traditions, was nearly destroyed in the 1970's during the tyrannical reign of the Khmer Rouge. Efforts are being made to recover the lost history of shadow theater and bring it back to its former glory and popularity. Shadow puppets are traditionally made in the region of Siem Reap, the location of Angkor Wat. Cow skin is cured and stretched out on a frame to dry for about 2 weeks. For this reason, shadow puppets can only be made during the dry season.
