The fantastic Tibetan trunk features a single Qi Lin, the mythical animal that was believed to bring good fortune, children and prosperity. Completely hand painted with the most charming, tribal, folk artsy approach, this trunk employs splendid colors varying from saffron to moss green. It's structurally sound after centuries of weathering the harsh Tibetan climate and enduring repeated use. The trunk has a base frame with steel corner reinforcements and an unique dome top. The patina on this piece is absolutely stunning. Hardware is a later addition in replacing the original ones lost to cultural revolution. Interiors have been cleaned and restored to ensure function. Sides feature tigers stay true to the Tibetan tribal culture. 

Solid wood.
