  Ongkhot in Khmer art

 

Cambodia

The monkey-warrior Ongkhot as depicted in a Khmer-style mural at the Silver Pagoda in Phnom Penh, here portrayed slaying a demon. He has a slightly paler green fur than sometimes in Thai art and his crown, of which the tip bends slightly backward, has a kranok-like shape, rather than its more bulbous form in Thai depictions (fig.).
