Decorate with Buddha statues and representations

Interior décor that includes cultural or religious symbols is a delicate subject and it’s not easy to form an opinion when you’re not exactly an expert in the domain. However, such representations have lately become less related to religion and more inclined towards art in general. For example, Buddha art is diverse and includes lots of different types of representations.

Buddha statues are very popular and not only in the Buddhist regions. The representation of Buddha is a very important artistic element in many Asian culture and not only. Depending on the region, these representations differ but they always have something in common. Since Buddha is an icon that is thought to bring good luck and prosperity to those that display it, it quickly became a popular décor element in temples but also in private homes.

But these statues and representation are not always displayed just because they bring good luck. These superstitions are still present but they don’t always represent the main reason for using them as accent element in our homes. It’s the symbolism that remains strong as well as the fact that Buddha is a strong figure in all kinds of artwork. Usually, with these representations comes drama, whether it’s a statue we’re talking about, a mural or some other kind of artwork.
