After visited in Oudong Mountain, we will move to Pol Toch village, in the province of Kandal, was a silversmith. Their works had been highly valued and their artistic skill recognised nationwide and even regionally. However, no thanks to civil wars, genocide and later on an economic crisis, the village almost lost its uniqueness. At one point, almost all craftsmen had to give up their career because they were unable to make a living from making silverware. In recent years, the demand for their products have gradually renewed, but the villagers are still struggling. They are also worried that the legacy which they have preserved for centuries would be lost because of the new generation’s ignorance. Taing Rinith reports.
