Mekhala Dance

 

A metaphor for the victory of good over evil. Armed with a crystal ball casting rays of lightening, the goddess of waters Moni Mekhala triumphs over the demon Ream Eyso (Eysaur), whose axe creates thunder. The two characters illustrate victory of beneficial rains over the dry and stormy season and is a popular sacred dance of Cambodia
