Tibetan Polychrome Snow Lion painted Trunk
Tibetan Polychrome Snow Lion low relief painted trunk, used gesso finish over the wood and polychrome paint on top, 14 1/2" high, 28" wide, 13 1/2" deep, and large Chinese Character decorated on both side. Iron ring in the back to hold the top cover, and interlocking dovetailed corners to hold pieces together. The hardware for lock in front to close the top is brass. There is a little hole about 1/2" to 3/4" round on one side caused by the natural eye in the wood popped out by the dryness of the wood, this is natural aging. The painting on the gesso over the wood is good condition, no major damage except some missing very small paint chips, overall the condition is very good compare after many years of harsh weather condition in Himalayan region.
