At Naturalcity furniture we customize not only the size of our bookcases but also their purpose. This whole unit was made primarily to house what is know as a Butsudan, a wooden cabinet that protects the Gohonzon, the object of devotion in Nichiren Buddhism and takes the form of a scroll inscribed with Chinese and Sanskrit characters, a mandala, of the eternal and intrinsic law of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
With room for books, related objects and space itself, we helped create a Buddhist shrine.
Made with selected reclaimed scaffold boards that are joined to give generous storage depth, rarley found in mass produced furniture.
The natural colour of this wood compliments all colours of rooms and all rooms of the house as well as our clients Butsudan.
P.S we can make Butsudans too! Contact us for details..
