The artefact

This small chest in chestnut and tulipier wood has shapes and decoration inspired by the traditional Sardinian wedding chest, simplified in the carved decoration with the distinctive motif of two stylised lapwings in the centre, enriched by brush-painted details in light green and red. Handcrafted with remarkable artisanal skill, it is a characteristic functional piece of furniture suitable for various rooms and it can be customised in decoration and size.
