Extended outwards in honest welcome, this hand of gold mimics Buddha‘s greetings. Ning Charoensri carves this rain tree wood piece inspired by ancient depictions of the great spiritual teacher. Painted gold to honor Buddha‘s divine origin, the statuette also serves as a business card holder. Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist nation, filled with breathtaking ancient temples, pagodas and other architectural wonders constructed to worship the Buddha. In Thailand images of the Buddha play an important role beyond mere decoration. They are traditionally placed within the home in special locations, such as shrines or pedestals, to help facilitate everyday religious worship.
About the Artist: Ning Charoensri decided to combine the experience I had gained with my passion for art and interior decoration. æWhen I began I encountered many obstacles. Competition was rife and finances were low. But I never gave up. I knew if I tried my best I would succeed. I love designing new lines and developing new products. The actual production is done by a group of very experienced carvers.Æ
The Ning Charoensri Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Ning Charoensri in Thailand. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
