Most mysterious of temples around Angkor Wat for the massive stone faces that decorate its towers.

Multiple faces are embossed on each tower, each on its facets. You would think they all share a single consciousness.

There is a face that greets you at every turn. A face always with a countenance of contentment. They smile mysteriously as you lose your way in this endless labyrinth.

Perhaps the temple is a single organism, its more than two hunded visages, the elaborate ruse of a many-headed trickster god?
