These hand-carved wooden pillars were once used to elevate burning incense in a shrine or altar display. An essential element of ritual prayer, incense is burned as a form of offering and to measure the duration of the ritual process. These incense stands are carved on one side with Old Chinese script and with a celestial dragon and phoenix on the other three. Auspicious creatures that symbolize power and good fortune, the dragon and phoenix together form an emblem of love and bliss. At the top of each column is a metal dish to protect the wood from burning incense or candles. Finished with red lacquer and gold paint, these unique incense stands bring celebratory color and storied history to the modern home.

“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.”
