“Brass chain originally used to hang swings. The detail on this particular chain has the symbol of Vajra, which means diamond in Sanskrit. The idea is for the mind to be sharp as a diamond to cut through illusion to attain enlightenment. The bird hooks on the end symbolize wisdom.” A native of Cody, WY, Russell Johnson found his true calling on a trip to Buenos Aires while visiting one of the most inspiring flea markets he’d ever encountered. The multilingual maverick instantly knew what he had to do: In 1997 he launched Russell Johnson Imports with an eclectic line of vintage objects that were an instant hit among designers and the media alike. In this specially curated sale Russell shares an amazing collection of authentic architectural elements, antique furniture, accessories, and art from India and other parts of the world.
