Antique Gilded Buddhist Temple Wood Carving Panel EUO137

Over a century old, this antique Buddhist temple panel was sculpted from teak wood and gilded in 24K gold leaf. It most likely once adorned the side of an abbot’s chair located inside the bot  (most sacred part of the wat or temple) with a mirror image on the other side, or alternatively, was part of the altar rail.

A mystical angel is carved into the left side as a guardian of Buddhist wisdom teachings.

The sculpture is structurally intact and without repairs. It has been mounted on a stand for display.

Genuine antique Burmese Buddhist wood carvings of this nature are very difficult to find nowadays, especially in such good condition. A certificate of authenticity will be provided.
