Pakistani Art

Art is not confined to buildings. My favourite are the decorated lorries that can be found everywhere in Pakistan. It is said that the drivers think more of their trucks than they so their wives. They are painted with flowers, birds and animals and even some very profound Urdu poetry is found on many of them. If you click on the picture to enlarge it you will be able to see in more detail.

They also like to decorate their tractors.

They come in all colours, some brighter than others. Many have elaborately carved wooden doors too.

The metal fringe at the bottom of this one jingles very loudly as it drives along.
