This handmade teak wall hanging was meticulously crafted by a master artisan from the Hill Tribes of northern Thailand. The sculpture was ornately carved to show every small detail of the Lotus flower. 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.. This plaques was securely connected with 3 separate sections. The seams are not noticeable. The reason sections were used is because there are few trees this wide for carving.

By placing this teak wood panel in your home, you will instill an atmosphere of peace and serenity. It is also quite appropriate office decor that will promote creativity, confidence, and mindfulness. Size: 23 inches across, 23 inches wide, 1/2 inches thick.
