Pakistan truck art

Wow. What a colorful and lively culture! In Pakistan, one would rarely see a truck not decorated. Trucks are painted and decorated with many colors and chimes are hung from the trucks to create jingling sounds.

The tradition of painting trucks in Pakistan is long and colourful.
It started out as a way for truck drivers to take reminders of home with them on long journeys, and over the years drivers have used everything from wood, metal, jangling chains, shiny objects and even 3D creations to decorate their trucks.

The truck art has turned into folk art for the home from plates and mugs to kettles.
