This Tibetan storage chest is richly finished with lacquered hide and iron hardware. The front is hand-painted with a fearsome tiger prowling a lush, mountainous landscape. Considered the king of all terrestrial creatures, the tiger is depicted towering over its surroundings, leaping over hills and tall bamboo stalks. The short ends of the trunk are painted with two seated tigers and the top with a flayed tiger pelt. Common motifs in Chinese and Tibetan Buddhist art, tigers are symbols of strength, fearlessness, power, and authority.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
