These three bronze fittings, most likely used to embellish a wooden palanquin, follow the style of decoration found on the famous temple mountain of Angkor Wat. Although stone and bronze sculptures are the best-known forms of Cambodian art, evidence exists, such as these fittings, for a well-developed and highly sophisticated art of metalwork that served the functional and decorative needs of the court and aristocracy. Each of these fittings is made of a shell-like section topped with a stylized flower, probably a lotus. Two of the fittings have hooks that resemble the stalks and leaves of the lotus; comparison with other objects of this type suggests that these hooks may once have held rings. The lack of volume in the floral decoration found on these fittings parallels the linearity found on 12th-century sculptures.
