Khmer Coke bottle hits Atlanta

CAMBODIA'S "home-made" Coke bottle, shown at right at its unveiling in

March by First Prime Minister Prince Norodom Ranariddh, arrived in Atlanta, USA where

it will join 50 other bottles from around the world for the Coca-Cola Olympic Salute

to Folk Art. The bottle's design was the brainchild of Ms. Mao Runarak, a fourth-year

student in Phnom Penh University's Faculty of Fine Arts, and combines a variety of

traditional arts, including silver work, bamboo and silk weaving, wood carving, and

handpainting using traditional vegetable dyes. Runarak's design was selected from

among a total of 460 entries in a competition conducted by the National Fine Arts

Association and sponsored by the Cambodia Beverage Company.
