TIBETAN PEACE CHEST
FEATURES: Beautiful chest is in muted colors, a type of Tibetan style that emphasizes the soft depictions of animals and objects. Painted on the front feature the four heavenly animals: lion, dragon, deer and tigers. The use of the scrolls to decorate the doors is a classic Tibetan approach. The side panels are of an interesting dented finish, echoing the hammered pattern often seen on Tibetan singing bowls. By depicting wild beasts cohabiting peacefully, the Tibetans express their wish for world peace.
