Vintage gilded wood Burmese monk on a lotus base holding his alms bowl. Found in a small Rangoon shop.
Gail DeLoach caught the design and collecting bug in Asia, during shopping trips for her LA store, Asiaphile. Her signature clean, distinctive style, seen in her elegant bath and spa collections, also reflects her eye for eccentric decorative items, primitive art, and natural curiosities. Gail still spends much of her time in Thailand and Burma scouring local markets for exceptional vintage finds, like the ones in our sale.
