This hand-carved wooden panel was created by an artisan of the Punu people of Gabon. Likely originally the door to a granary, the panel is carved with the "displayed female" motif, bordered by two reptiles. The female figure is decorated with an elaborate hairstyle and body scarification patterns, features of ideal feminine beauty. We love the visible chisel marks that animate the panel with rhythmic texture.

“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.”
