Beautiful hand-carved ancient panel from Toraja, Sulawesi. Symbolizes peace and happiness. Please note this one has sold however we have a private collection and can send images of others with this same beautiful carving.
This ancient carving 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.
