SILENT WATERS VILLA - ART AND ANTIQUITIES COLLECTION

Many guests enjoying their Jamaican holiday inquire as to the origin of the plethora of antiques, sculptures and artwork found throughout the villa property.  The collection of artwork was amassed by the owners over the past several decades from travels around the world, focusing on Asian and Far Eastern antiquities.  Some of the important artwork is listed below:

  • 18th Century Buddhist Bible Chest - from the Ching Mai area of Thailand located in the Golden Triangle in the northwest part of the country.  The Buddhist Monks placed manuscripts in the back vault.  (Main Pavilion)
  • 17th Century pair of aged teak Buddhist statuary attendants.  These figures were stationed in the front of a Buddhist Temple in Mandalay, Burma (now Myanmar) and were removed during the late 1980's when civil war broke out in Burma.  (Main Pavilion)
  • 17th Century bronze temple bell - also from Burma and was removed from the temple during the late 1980's when civil war broke out in Burma.  (Main Pavilion)
