10. Bayon

a. Based on the report of Ad Hoc Experts Group, the ICC expresses its appreciation for the rigour and the precision of the methodological approach carried out by the JASA in the Bayon site.

It notes with satisfaction the increasing role given, within the JASA team, to Cambodian personnel in a ever wider range of skills, know-how, scientific and technical disciplines

b. With regard to the restoration of statuary components (representations of nagas and lions), the ICC recommends that the JASA team tries out a wider range of strengthening and adhesive products than the one of epoxy resins and polymers presently used. This experimentation may prove extremely valuable and instructive in prevision of future interventions on sculpted sceneries in the bas-relief gallery.
