Focus on antique wooden statues
For thousands of years, statues of all sorts of gods, deities and ancestors were made to honor and worship them and to implore favors and protection for the tribe, family or home. There are few things which tell us as much about ancient cultures than the beliefs and ideals that were worshiped.
The antique wooden statues of The Silk Road Collection have a unique style and appeal, along with the cultural value, which is not to be underestimated. Each statue has a story of its own. They all originate from the Qing dynasty in China (1644–1912), in which time the influence of Taoism (The Way of Life, The Meaning of ones Life) was still very popular, especially in the countryside.
The Deity figurines were usually honored in a special room or part of a room that was meant for worshiping. The statue stood on an altar or altar table where incense was burned. The finesse of the area, altar table and statues depended on the financial and social status of the family.
The Silk Road Collection includes quite a number of antique Deity statues. Our belief is that the right statue in the right place, can really enrich and enhance your interior.
