Antique Hand Carved Wood Garuda Statue or Wall Hanging. Thailand

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures


In Buddhist mythology, the Garuda was an enormous predatory bird with intelligence and social organization.

What struck me most about this wooden statue was the colored glass ornamentation.  This carving  is a very similar representation of the Garuda located in the south hall of Chakri Maha Prasat Hall, Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand . . .  but a lot smaller.

Carving is in excellent condition with a couple of glass ornaments missing.

This piece is quite old and as acquired from a private home north of Rayong city.
