Dwell: thai buddha [new member on the mantlepiece]
In rearranging the objects crowding the mantelpiece, I purchased a Thai Buddha head in beautiful hand carved wood. The significant feature of the Thai Buddha seems to be the hair part which is carved in a spike-like manner. You can find some here and here. The second one is the exact one I have! But mine is from Ross :)
To arrange the mantlepiece - instead of placing medium to small sized objects it is best to decorate with one or two large pieces [art/mirror/frame] and then adding medium to small pieces. It is also important to make sure that all objects can be seen from the other side of the living area. This will determine the size.
