These handmade teak wall hangings were meticulously crafted by a master artisan from the Hill Tribes of northern Thailand. The sculpture was ornately carved to show every small detail in a floral pattern.
The flower of this plaque represents the Lotus, which has great Buddhist symbolism. The Buddhist Lotus symbolicly translates to mean rising and blooming above the muddy waters of life. It also represents enlightenment and full awareness of the spirit as one becomes pure in body, speech, and wisdom. Essentially, it is the ongoing rebirth of our conscious awareness so that we may attain the enlightenment as did Buddha during his spiritual growth. The lotus flower is probably the most recognizable symbol of Buddhism and Hinduism.
Each genuine teak panel was individually sculpted and will have some variances in regards to exact size and cuts, etc.. Each section usually has 2 pieces of teak wood joined together, tightly to form 1 long tapered to 36" panel. The seams are not noticeable. The reason sections were used is because there are few trees this wide for carving.
They are a wonderful centerpieces to any room, whether it is your bedroom, living room, or any place of meditation. By placing one of these teak wood panels in your home, you will instill an atmosphere of peace and serenity. They are also quite appropriate office decor that will promote creativity, confidence, and mindfulness.
Total Size: 36 inches diameter, 1/2 inch thick. Please note that the size may vary slightly up to 1/2" due to the natural drying of teak wood and each lotus panel is individually carved.
Color: Dark brown stain.
