DESCRIPTION

Ancient hand carved architectural wood panel from Batak, North Sumatra. Originally used from the front side of a Batak house. Traditional Batak houses have many carvings both inside and outside. Perfect as a head board or as a wall hanging both vertical or horizontal. We only source the best.

This panel was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
