The mandala symbols that adorn this Rajasthani painted cupboard, symbolise the universe and the shape painted on this cupboard is thought to exhibit radial balance. The form painted on this colourful Indian cupboard, of 4 gates moving in concentric circles around a central point, is typical of the iconography of the region in which the cupboard is made. The colourful yellow blue and yellow patterns are adorned with fine floral detailing and petals, to add exoticism to this Indian floral cupboard. The bedside is finished with distressed detailing to give an antique feel to this cupboard. This eclecticism and mixture of iconography displayed in this shabby Indian cupboard is representative of the diverse ethnic mix of the Indian subcontinent.
