Thailand, Antique Buddhist Dharma Wheel
This rare pottery Dharma Wheel would probably have been crafted for use in a provincial shrine or a household alter. It is crafted in two pieces with the shaft fitting into the base. There are some small repairs to three of the spokes.
The eight spokes represent the Eight Fold Path, The rim is represents Meditation, Concentration and Mindfulness and the Hub represents Moral Discipline. The round shape represents the perfection of the Dharma.
