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

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.
