A very unusual, small cabinet with dovetail joined top and sides, elaborately painted lotus flowers and other auspicious symbols on the front doors, raised abstract leaf paintings on the door frames. The doors open to yet more abstract floral paintings on the interior back panel. This small cabinet might very well have been used for storing religious paraphernalia in the altar room.
