Description

Lanterns were traditionally used to light the way along paths to a buddhist temple and this is a particularly fine example, handsomely tall and elegantly proportioned.

Originating from China but incorporated into Japanese culture, these platform lanterns or dai-dōrō began to be used in Shinto shrines and even in people's homes and gardens.

The modern world has now adopted them to be used decoratively and they are particularly effective near water which is of course an essential element of a Japanese garden.

Although containing symbolism that we may not appreciate, in a purely decorative sense one or a series of these lanterns will be a wonderful enhancement for your garden whether or not it is orientally themed.

Pearl Dauncey Asked:

I have this lantern in our garden already and it looks stunning! Which temple dogs work the best, the large or the small pair? I would like to match the colour as much as I can, also the lantern stands at 92cm so l was going to order the large dogs. Also which buddha or Asian princess do you suggest?

We Replied:

Dear Pearl Thank you for your question. The temple dogs are finished in a granite grey rather than a white finish. They look amazing and both sizes complement the lantern. It really depends on how much space you have. The large dogs are fantastic to be honest. I think the sleeping Deity looks nice. We have it in gold at the garden centre, the Bodhisattva is also an impressive tall statue.
