Angkor Wat bas reliefs

Angkor watt is famous for the bas reliefs throughout. This example represents a very small part of a huge ‘mural’ depicting various historical and cultural events. From what I could see, the relief has been constructed in several parts and then put into place on the wall.

I don’t know how they made this type but whoever made it must have had a lot of help or was very patient because there were several throughout the temple.
