Thai Scroll Buddha Wall Decor
This "scroll" wall decoration comes to us from Thailand and represents a Buddha's head. There is a small string behind that allows you to attach it to a nail.
This item comes from fair trade with our friends the Thai artisans.
Buddhism is the predominant religion in Thailand, with more than 90% of the population identifying as Buddhist. Thai Buddhism is influenced by the Theravada tradition, which emphasizes the importance of personal spiritual practice, meditation, and good moral conduct.
Buddhist temples, known as "wats", are an important part of Thai culture. They are found in every city and town. The monks, who are highly respected in Thai society, live and study in the temples. They receive overwhelming support from the local community through donations of food, money, and other offerings.
Many Thais incorporate Buddhist practices into their daily lives, such as making offerings at the temple or meditating daily.
Buddhist holidays, such as Vesak (the Buddha's birthday), Asalha Puja (the day of the Buddha's first sermon), and Magha Puja (a day to commemorate the Buddha's teachings), are also widely celebrated in Thailand.
Buddhism plays a very important role in Thai culture and society, and it is common to see Buddhist symbols in the decorative elements of homes, hotels and restaurants in the country.
