This is a bank of a painted truck. These are paintings of women with pots on their heads and cows grazing in the background of hills, a lake and trees.
This is a close up of a brightly painted orange truck with motifs of goddesses and the lotus flower. At the front of the truck against a red background there is a small pot with a coconut inside it and this is a religious symbol.
That same truck has a picture of the Taj Mahal painted on the front of the truck.
The eye of the truck!
The peacock is the Indian national bird and therefore this is a popular motif used for truck painting. The lotus is also seen in the centre of the two peacocks. The lotus has a religious significance in India.
At the back of this tempo there are paintings which are entirely religious...the swastika with the pooja pot with sacred leaves and coconut as well as the pink lotus flowers on each side.
