Description: One of the charateristics of Indian temple architecture is the frequent device of producing on a building a series of the increasingly reduced miniaturized versions of the form of the whole structure. This pratice was also followed in Khmer temples.
This antefix of Prasat demonstrates clearly the construction principle of the tower, including the rhyming arcatures of the doorways. The form of the antefixes offered a guidline to the original construction of the collapsed Prasat and provided a useful model during the anastylosis of the towers.
