This 19th-century architectural fragment is beautifully carved in low relief with a whimsical design of buddha's hand citrons growing upon a flowering vine. Considered an auspicious Buddhist offering, the fingered citron is named for its resemblance to the Buddha's hand in prayer, in the gesture of a Buddhist mudra. The sinuous citrons of this carved element provide unusual contrast to the fragment's otherwise naturalistic design - perhaps as evidence of the fruit's otherworldly nature.

“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.”
