Lacquered trunk made by artisans of the poblation of Olinala in the mexican state of Guerrero.
The term lacquer is applied to the making of a protective layer composed of a mixture of vegetable or animal oils which in turn is sealed by a layer made of a mineral powder called tierra. The oleaginous compound endows the object with its finished, glossy appearance. In Olinala, lacquers are made using a plant based oil pressed either from the seeds of the chia, or from a species of linseed, linaza brought from Europe. Various techniques are used to decorate this lacquered surface, the most important of which are called aplicado and rayado. In the aplicado technique, the craftsman paints the lacquer with animal and floral designs.
