The Maya peoples of Guatemala created incredible works of art through columnar woodworking and stone shaping. The base carvings on this column emulate ferns and other low-lying foliage. As the artisan worked upwards, the ferns gave way to a fantastically tight spiral, topped by a canopy of leaves reaching for the sun. This striking sense of movement draws the eye across the subtle textural variations in the nut-brown wood. The hand of the craftsperson is starkly apparent in this soulful sculptural object.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
