Mireille Benisti had made the study of stylistics of early Khmer and Indian art her life work. The present volume contains translations of Benisti's major publications dealing with Khmer art. The main artaicle is a study of the relations between early Khmerr and Indian art, i.e. 7th and 8th centuries, the crucial period of the introduction of Indian religion and other components of Indian culture in the first well-organized kingdom of Khmer land. She has referred to the process of transfer of concepts and motifs; movable objects, such as statues, caskets, rituals objects, etc., transported decoration which could have inspired local artists. Madame Benistis held that art is a living entity and that it is always in a state of transformation. In this cotext, she has pointed out links and transitions between different styles, moments of evolution in which a particular style abandoned some characters and adopted the primitive aspect of new characters of a later style.
