It is a small trinket box I found in an op shop one day. The intricacy, the red and carved-like rendering of the shapes made me wonder about its original design or at least the inspiration for it. A quick google tells me it is based on carved red laquerware that was predominant in 12th century China.
The box I have is mass produced but it is kind of nice that the design has been inspired by the past.
Oil pastel and pencil, 19 x 21cm
