Apsara dancer with lotos flower

The Apsaras or celestial nymphs are sensuous, graceful females which adorn the temple walls and they are amongst the most beautiful examples of relief carving. So you still find a lot of those artificial carvings in Angkor Wat.

Difference between Apsara and Devata

Friend art historians differentiate between the figures depending on their stance.
Those who dance or fly are referred to as Apsaras, while the standing figures are called Devatas.
