The dancing female deities known as ‘apsaras‘ (in Sanskrit, meaning the female spirit of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist culture) were the first beings to emerge from the sea of creation.

In this visual, a dancer in a traditional dress is seen performing ‘apsara dance‘ (where gestures are codified to narrate classical stories), and an illustration of the entrance gate of Angkor Thom and the statues depicting Samudra Manthana i.e., churning of the ocean of milk can be seen in the background.
