Fight scenes

A battle scene with a very large monkey dominating the panel
A few more of the decorative panels that adorn the second tier of the 11th-century Baphuon temple in Angkor, showing various fighting scenes. There are four restored gates that house these unique panels and the recently re-opened temple is allowing visitors to see these as well as the renovated east and west gates that have devata maidens and dvarapala guardian figures, as well as small panels showing various animals.
This may be more of an attempt to control a horse than a fight scene

A group of warriors on their way to war

Another battle scene, set in a forest with small creature climbing the tree to escape
