Description
An elaborately-carved, squat rectangular wooden box on four ball feet with a lockable lid. The four walls of the box have an elaborately carved floral, on the back panel a single dog running is centred, and on the ends a bird each is seen perched in the foliage. The top of the box presents a scene from "the life of the Hindu Gods," five figures one of them dog-faced, in formal pose, and on either side of that group are two fish-tailed men. A 10 cm. crack runs from the front left foot on the box base, and a crack 22 cm. long runs around the corner of the top left of the lid.
