39.5″ wide x 16″ high x 1.5″ thick.
Hand carved from a single piece of teak wood a beautiful simple carving which works well for an art installation or as a head board. We have a pair. The price reflects one.
This carving was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It’s a beauty of things modest and humble. It’s 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.
