World expositions were a popular way for European countries to show off their colonies and bring the exoticism of distant lands straight to the people. As part of French Indochina, Cambodia was a French protectorate from 1863-1953. The exhibition in Marseille was France's third colonial exhibition and attracted over 1,800,000 visitors. Here, a Cambodian dancer in traditional attire welcomes guests to their pavilion which resembles the temple of Angkor Wat—a Hindu temple complex that is the largest religious monument in the world.
