  • A plan of Java’s Borobudur temple, probably drawn by Hermann Cornelius, a Dutch Engineer who was sent to uncover the remains of a rumoured temple by Thomas Stamford Raffles in the early 1800s. Raffles was then the governor of Java, and later on became the founder of Singapore in 1819. This plan is on display at the Asian Civilisations Museum as part of the Raffles in Southeast Asia exhibition happening until 28 April. #singapore #asiancivilisationsmuseum #britishmuseum #rafflesinsoutheastasia #indonesia #java #raffles #borobudur #architecture #southeastasianarchaeology

  • In the forest of Phnom Kulen is a site called Srah Damrei, a unique 8-9th century site with an elephant, a couple of lions and other animals carved out of the sandstone. The elephant stands about 15 feet tall - pretty much life-sized! #cambodia #phnomkulen #southeastasianarchaeology #srahdamrei #elephant #sandstone #carving #lion #siemreap #angkor

  • Today is the first day of the Lunar New Year, observed by Vietnamese and Chinese communities across the world. This year is also the year of the pig, hence this Han Dynasty ceramic pig on display at the National Palace Museum in Taiwan. 🐽🐽#taiwan #museum #chinesenewyear #cny #cny2019 #ceramics #pig #handynasty #nationalpalacemuseum

  • On my way to the @acm_sg to see the Raffles exhibition (more on that in later posts), when I caught the tail end of the excavations at the Padang. Conducted in conjunction with the Singapore Bicentennial, a simple 2 x 1 m pit was dug down to reveal the archaeological layers of modern Singapore, the colonial period, the Temasek layer and the white sands of legend. #singapore #padang #singaporebicentennial #nationalgallerysingapore #singaporearchaeology #southeastasianarchaeology #singaporecivicdistrict
