Decorating trucks is practiced in Pakistan and several Central Asian countries. Truck drivers compete against each other, trying to create the most vivid, exquisite decoration. Each region develops its distinctive style. For example, the use of carved wooden doors is more characteristic for Swat and Peshawar, camel bones and a white plastic inlay - for Sindh, and the image of peacocks - for Punjab. stainless steel structural elements are common to all. Feature stories illustrate not only the world, aesthetic presentation and an emotional experience, but also the religious aspects.
