Beautiful and unique tray with hand painted colourful bird inside. Perfect for keeping all your treasures or display it on a shelf. 

Paper mache craft is still celebrated in Bihar region in India. Old papers are soaked in water for a few days until they start to decompose. The excess water is then squeezed out and the soaked paper is mixed with paper, straw, cloth to form a paste. Using paste, local artists hand build various animals (like cow, tiger, bird) and other objects like plates, bowls, even lamps. Later, they are uniquely painted on the outside - first in black & white (I think they are our favourites!) then primary colours might be added. 

Measurements: 22 cm x 17 cm x 5 cm
