A lovely old red stained make up box from India

This box has five internal compartments to contain red turmeric or vermilion paste - used to apply the red tikka mark applied to the forehead.

Boxes like these are also used for make-up by dancers such as the Kathakali dancers of Kerala.

A well used box worn smooth over many years. The top of the circular box is carved with designs that resemble the spokes of a wheel.
