This Buddhist sculpture is among the artifacts collected by a couple who spent nearly 40 years in Thailand as missionaries in the early 20th century. Made of gilded cast bronze and embellished with black and red lacquer, the sculpture depicts Buddha being brought gifts of fruit and honeycomb. Rendered in a highly ornate style, the figure stands before a monkey, an elephant and snakes who reach toward him with an attitude of reverence.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
