Excellent Product of the Year -- Six-Edge Incense Table
Its original design was from a piece of furniture made in late Ming dynasty (1550-1600), and the ancient furniture was recorded in the book Hundreds of Pictures of the Wood Craftwork Collected By Hong which was edited by Hong Jiansheng and HongWang Jiaqi.
This Six-Edge Incense Table is crafted in a similar but simplified shape. The upper and lower parts are of unified style while they share different view attention. The upper part is lighter and freer by the mirroring effect of the lower part. The carved “卍” on the waist board is one of Chinese traditional auspicious patterns. The “卍” symbol is an ancient spell to serve as protection or for religious use. It is regarded as the symbol of sun or fire. In Sanskrit, “卍” means “the gathering of good luck”. Buddhism thinks it the auspicious mark on Gautama Buddha’s chest that foresees felicity and longevity. The pattern on the table that connects numerous “卍” symbols by lengthening its four sides is to express a good wish for continuous happiness and luck.
