Antique Hand Carved Water Buffalo



Retail price



18 x 1.5 x 35″ high. 


Beautiful hand carved water buffalo. Originally used as a rice barn door. A symbol to protect the home and wonderful hanging as a piece of art. 

This door was sourced in the spirit of Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanenceIt 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.
