An old friend, Soumya James has published her doctoral dissertation on the divine feminine in Khmer art in The Symbiosis of Image, Monument and Landscape: A Study of Select Goddess Images at Prasat Kravan, Kbal Spean and Banteay Srei in Camnodia. I remember meeting Soumya many moons ago in the Rising Sun restaurant/bar in Phnom Penh for a chat. She later wrote three articles in my own book, To Cambodia With Love. She was working at the Department of History of Art and Visual Studies at Cornell University, USA. A review of her dissertation can be read http://dissertationreviews.org/archives/2432.
