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.

Those who dance or fly are referred to as Apsaras, while the standing figures are called Devatas.
