More shots from my visit to the National Museum of Cambodia in Phnom Penh (see Monks at the Museum and The Monk and The Schoolgirl). Nice framing by the Traveller's Palm on the right, which is actually not really a palm, but a member of the bird of paradise family (Strelitziaceae) from Madagascar. The penetrating gaze of the monk in front is also nice. [NOTE: Ravenana madagascarensis, i.e. the Traveller's Palm, is said to be pollinated by ruffed lemurs. Which is, additionally, quite nice].
