Description from user:

Recently I have come in possession of two paintings by the Cambodian artist Sophannarith Thou. I purchased these from a person, who acquired them in Cambodia seven years ago during a visit there. This person did not know anything of the painter artist and just bought them, as she liked the subject and colours. Before I migrated to Australia in 1980, I was employed as a high school teacher with degrees in graphics and art. I had heard of Sophannith Thou before and was keen to acquire some of his works from this person. Unfortunately, the seller could not give me any further info about the works.
