The Maya peoples of Guatemala created incredible works of art through columnar woodworking and stone shaping. The base carvings on this column emulate ferns and other low-lying foliage. As the artisan worked upwards, the ferns gave way to a fantastically tight spiral, topped by a canopy of leaves reaching for the sun. This striking sense of movement draws the eye across the subtle textural variations in the nut-brown wood. The hand of the craftsperson is starkly apparent in this soulful sculptural object.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
