Siamese covered cart.
3 2 c m
actual image size: 32cm x 24cm


Model (scale 1:12). This Siamese travelling cart, which would have been pulled by a water buffalo, is constructed entirely of wood and has a long narrow body, with sides formed of vertical bars inclining outward at the top, surmounted by a semicircular roof of matting. It has two spoked wheels with very long hubs, each running loose on a separate axle. The rear ends of the outside frame bars are curved upward and serve to extricate the cart should it sink into soft ground.
