Principles of Truck Art

1. Ornate Metal Cowling
2. Framing
3. Plastic Applique (ornamental pieces sewn or stuck to form a pattern)
4. Mosaics
5. Motifs
a) Idealised elements from Life (landscapes/women)
b) Elements of Modern life (Tv, War, media inspired)
c) Talismanic and fetish objects (these represent good luck and fortune)
d) Religious Symbols such as fish, eyes, Buraq (half horse half woman)
6. Feminization of the Truck
7. Two personalities in one truck (the front and the Back showing different view points)
