Product Description

This is an old and beautiful 2 section Japanese Butsudan (literal meaning, "Buddha altar" or "House of Buddha").  It is an altar that is often found in temples and homes in Japan. 

The Butsudan is a wooden cabinet with doors that enclose and protect a Gohonzon or other Buddhist icons, typically a statue or painting of a Buddha or scroll. The doors are opened to display the icon during religious observances and closed before sunset.
