A vintage Japanese hand-carved stone pagoda from the last quarter of the 20th century. This Japanese decorative pagoda features an exquisite architecture adorned with beveled and molded windows, delicate volutes and topped with a petite flame. This upper section is raised on a foliage-adorned post terminated by a delicate scroll, resting on a circular base. Japanese pagodas derive from Indian stupas and were originally used as reliquaries. Today pagodas are typically shrines, with wooden pagodas standing three or more stories high while stone pagodas rarely exceed heights of ten feet. Small decorative pagodas are common, in Japan and beyond.

 

Pagodas in Japan are strongly associated with Buddhism, while in the west they are common decorative objects associated with serenity and peacefulness. This Japanese hand-carved stone pagoda from the 1980s, with its classic style and nice proportions will make a stunning addition to any garden or patio.
