Hand-Painted Peacock Chest, Black
Sorry, currently out of stock
This beautiful chest was painted by hand in Pakistan by the renowned artisans who create 'truck art'.
Truck art is a highly decorative art form in South Asia, where trucks are elaborately customised by their owners. The detailed designs are personalised to contain elements that remind the drivers of home when they are out on the road for months at a time. Kaleidoscopic patterns feature elaborate florals, exotic animals and sometimes even depict historical scenes or poetic verses.
Collected on travels through Pakistan by a well-connected funky dude who’s business motto is ‘good shit, good prices’, this gorgeous piece is a rare find!
This box can be locked with the addition of a small padlock, making it a perfect place to store precious items, keepsakes or important documents.
