Regarding the excessive 1922 Expo extravaganza

…until the Franco-Siamese Treaty of 1907, the region of Angkor was not part of the French protectorate; therefore, opportunities for the expansion of archaeological, art historical, and photographic resources required for an exact translation of the Angkorian temples into the French hemisphere were limited. This situation completely changed once the northwestern provinces of Cambodia became part of the French protectorate. As a consequence, the material translation and representation of the temples of Angkor evidenced a new quality and quantity at the Exposition nationale coloniale de Marseille (National Colonial Exhibition) of 1922.
