Small intaglio-decorated chest

The artefact

It is a smaller version of the traditional Sardinian wedding chest; the small storage unit is richly decorated with incisions, featuring motifs collected by craftsman during the study and restoration of the old local furniture: the flowered diamond, the lapwings, the triangle-decorated frame inspired by water motifs. It is made using beech wood, with an ash version; it can be customized in size, design and colour.
