Thai teak woodcarving of a Fish, Pla Hua Bad from Himmapan
Thai teak woodcarving of a Fish, Pla Hua Bad from Himmapan.
A really intricate carving depicting Pla Hua Bad (Fish - Head - Monk's Bowl). This is a fish based creature from Thai mythology based around the many strange creatures of the Himmapan Forest (also known as the Himavanta - surrounding Mount Meru in Hindu mythology, and the Nariphon tree of Thai Buddhist folklore is said to grow there).
Note: This is an ex-display piece and carries minor damages, but is still a really wonderful carving. This is offered at a much lower price than if it were brand new and in pristine condition.
43 cm high x 40 cm wide x 36 cm deep (including base).
