Vintage Hand Carved Garuda Teak Wood Candelabra Candleholder

$ 529.00

Old Garuda Candelabra from Java Indonesia, carved from solid teak wood. Originally used for illumination during Ramayana story shadow puppet plays. The "wings" mounted onto a center pillar of this unique ethnic piece are meant to deflect the wind from blowing out the flaming candle  are carved into the form of Garuda, mount of Lord Vishnu & King of the Birds. The wings are hinged using a mortise and tenon type of hinge carved directly into the wood allowing them to fold either to the front or back. The center cup to hold a candle or small oil lamp is also carved from teak. Still original paint as I found this in an antique shop in Indonesia. 

A very beautiful & rare collectable, a unique decorators piece that will be sure to ad global ethnic flare to your home or project.
