Magazine Rack painted by Yoka Van Den Brink, 1994, using contemporary styling with a traditional Hindeloopen 'Sunday' colour scheme. Hindeloopen craft techniques date back to the 16th century, to the port of Hindeloopen, in Friesland in the North of Holland where sailors developed a decorative tradition of handpainting domestic items to add colour to the dark houses through winter. Motifs include flowers, scrolls, buds, birds and sometimes bible scenes and landscapes.
