This incredible stone pedestal dates to the mid-19th century and likely originated as a stele monument or a segment of a large temple column. The square pedestal is carved in relief on all sides with Buddhist imagery in the Northern Wei style. A seated Buddha graces each side of the column, surrounded by seated disciples, monks, and bodhisattvas. The dense carvings have worn with time, but still display many fine details such as the graceful folds of their robes or the linework of their radiant halos.

“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.”
