Angkor Wat

Bas-reliefs
Eastern gallery, North part
Vishnu Victory over Asuras

Army of Asuras come from both sides and converge towards the center of the bas-relief where Vishnu with Garuda are hacking Asuras and animals. It is known by engraved inscriptions that this relief was accomplished in the middle of 16th century. His style is different and graving is not so fine that appears insufficient working out of details compared with the works of 12th century.
