A dancer performs a masked theatre known as Lakhon Khol at the Wat Svay Andet buddhist temple in Kandal province, Cambodia. Cambodia's centuries-old tradition of masked dance was nearly wiped out by the Khmer Rouge's "Killing Fields" regime, but a handful of artists managed to keep it alive and are now working to pass it along to a new generation.

A dancer gets ready before a performance of Lakhon Khol at the Wat Svay Andet buddhist temple in Kandal province, Cambodia. The ultra-Maoist Khmer Rouge in Cambodia - who scorned most art as decadent - banned its study in the 1970s. The art form is still struggling to recover from the genocidal 1975-79 rule, in which at least 1.7 million people, including artists, dancers and writers, died, mostly from starvation, overwork, disease, execution or torture.

Dancers get ready backstage before a performance of Khon in Bangkok, Thailand. Mom Luang Pongsawad Sukhasvasti, 67, hand-fashions Khon masks from his home studio north of Bangkok. Each mask takes a month to produce, from molding the plaster to drawing the intricate details. Pongsawad said the UNESCO listing could boost awareness. "Teachers now must do more than teaching the dance," he said. "They need to help students understand the roots as well to preserve it."
