Vintage Thai Temple Wooden Deer

This vintage hand carved wooden deer comes from Thailand. Because the location of the Buddha’s first teaching was in the Deer Park, Sarnath, deer have a place of honor in Buddhism, and their likeness can be seen in Buddhist temples all over Thailand. They also symbolize long life, and represent the forest creatures who followed the Buddha wherever he walked, because his appearance was so wondrous and his presence so peaceful.

This deer comes apart in many pieces so it can be easily transported. There is one crack in the rump, see last photo.
