Two huge Buddhist statues found at Angkor Wat

Two large Buddhist statues have been unearthed in Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple complex.

Ly Vanna, an artifacts expert for the government’s Apsara Authority that oversees the site, said Thursday the two stone statues found at Ta Prohm temple were headless but the larger one if complete would stand about 10 feet (3 meters) tall. He says the statues are believed to date from the 12th century and are the biggest discovered since the 1930s.
