At two metres in height, this set of two antique wood panels is vivid and versatile. The design is gorgeous, and the hand-carved work by craftsmen depicts a man and a woman standing atop a series of geometric patterns. It’s yin and yang, it’s a balance of nature, and it’s a harmony of the senses.
As a decorative piece you have the option of placing it by the wall, next to TV cabinets, by the bookshelves or as a centerpiece in itself – it is commanding and is a great conversation piece. If, however, you have a large space to play with – say a living room or maybe even a retail shop area – then you could use these hand-carved pieces as a room divider. At this height, these Papuan-inspired panels from Indonesia can act as an ecological fence, separating spaces and imparting surprises. II is available at wholesale price.
