Lacquered Bowls

Yi lacquerware is a traditional handicraft of the Nuosu people. Carved from local wood, the bowls, goblets, and wine jugs are painted in vivid designs with red, black and yellow paints and then lacquered for durability. The bright colors of everyday household implements lend cheerfulness to the dimly lit interiors of Nuosu homes. They are equally enchanting in western homes, becoming a conversation piece in many different settings.
