Antique Chinese Temple Cabinet probably used as a Butsudan cabinet.

This cabinet was featured in ICON magazine.

Deep red painted temple cabinet with unusual legs from the Qing Dynasty. Appears to have been crafted by a well intentioned but primitive craftsman; perhaps a devotee to the temple in which it was housed. Irregular carvings and unusual legs make this temple cabinet a special find. Painted images are of symbolically auspicious fruits and flowers.

Butsudan is a Japanese word that means Buddha's (butsu) House (dan). They are used in both publics temples and private homes.

A butsudan is a wooden cabinet with doors that house religious icons, statues and incense burners, bells, candlesticks, and other batsugu. During religious observances the doors are opened to display the icon.

Today it can be used as a butsudan or to place clothes, books, towels, personal items or even electronic equipment.
