Angkor Apsaras

Asia, Monochrome, Tranquil

Apsaras are beautiful, young, elegant, females. Masterful in in the art of dancing; they entertain and sometimes seduce men. Before you get too caught up in the possibilities, they’re also mythological:) According to Hindu legend the “elixir of immortality” was lost in the (mythological) Ocean of Milk. The Gods went looking for it and, so it is said, that these Goddesses were born from the Ocean of Milk. Think water nymphs that were pulled from the ocean by the Gods and you’re on the right track.
