Pakistani truck makes it way along the Karakoram highway in Pakistan's central Hunza valley. The high wooden prow above the cab is typical of local truck art, and is referred to as the "taj" or crown, according to Aikins.

Bashir, a truck driver for 25 years, sits inside his cab at a truck stop in Rawalpindi. Elaborate decoration is not limited to the trucks' exteriors. In Karachi, the center of Pakistan's truck painting industry, rows of shops whose sole purpose is to furnish truck interiors brim with ornaments, plastic flowers, and small chandeliers. 

In the 1960s, during a boom in Pakistan's economy, British Bedford trucks became "the prestige truck of choice." According Durriya Kazi, this meant that the "style of painting and decoration evolved to fit the Bedford like a glove."
