National Museum of Scotland – Buddha Plinth

National Museum of Scotland – Buddha Plinth

Originating from Southeast Asia, early in the 19th century, this figure of Buddha is made from teak wood and overlaid with gold leaf. The buddha stands on a stepped octagonal wooden pedestal.

This is one example of numerous display items that Old School Fabrications has designed and built for the National Museum of Scotland. This octagonal plinth is made from the solid surface material, Hi-Macs. The plinth is made in 3 stepped sections, with removable skirting and adjustable feet. By incorporating these details, this makes the plinth easy to move, assemble and adjust.

The Buddha is on permanent display on Level 5 of the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh.
