Name: Ta Oi Couple Statues
This is an absolutely lovely, hand-carved, wooden statue couple - he hiking with a walking stick and his arm behind his back, and she, with a "woven" backpack on her back and smoking a pipe. They exude a sense of peacefulness and companionability. Just charming. Traditionally they are placed on the steps leading into a home to greet visitors and to bring luck to the household.
Size: 11.5" tall
Origins: Champasak Province, Laos
