ANGKOR THOM/gods vs. demons

Victory Gate/Cambodia (in every gate entrance a serpent spreads its nine heads in the shape of a fan at the beginning of the causeway. Its body extends the length of the causeway and is held by the 54 gods and 54 demons forming a serpent-like railing. It may symbolize the rainbow uniting the worlds of man and the gods. This representation is reinforced by the presence of Indra...)
