The Lorry


Ink painting on watercolour paper



Lorries in Pakistan are like none others that  I have ever seen, highly decorated with motifs that are special to the owner. They go so far as to take the original doors of and replace them with wooden ones!! I got talking to one driver and he told me that he had spent in excess of one million rupees having his truck personalised, apparently there is a factory in Rawalpindi which specialises in customising lorries, buses and even rickshaws unfortunately on the day I was going to visit it was closed, well maybe  next time…..
