Antique Buddha Shrine
Shanxi, circa 1850
This wonderfully ornate shrine is one of a number that were sourced from a Buddhist temple in Shanxi province, where it would have housed a statue of the Buddha and other offerings. It is in good condition given its age, beautifully carved with lattice work and relief carvings on the doors and with an exquisite replica of a tiled Chinese roof, complete with dragons and golden finials. With the details picked out in the original lacquers in black red and yellow, now worn around the base to the wood beneath, this would make a real talking piece and feature ornament. Beautifully made and a now rare item that is difficult to source.
