Handpainted Tray Rectangle - Deer
Papier mache (literally "chewed paper" in French) gained popularity worldwide because of its versatility. Historically it has been used in a wide range of applications, from functional to artistic. It makes up the colourful products of many folk traditions, such as this tray from Nepal. Historically paper mache was a good way to re-use material which was then expensive and hard to access. An important advantage is that it can be very strong while remaining very light.
