This folk hand-painted panel, laden with meaning, was originally an interior painted panel of a large storage cabinet. The panel is painted with a scene of two young boys in traditional aprons, a motif commonly referred to as "ho ho boys." The boys hold lotus flowers above their heads, symbols of purity and abundance. Considered a blessing for many children and good health, the decorated panel likely belonged to a cabinet received as a dowry gift to a newly wed couple.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
