The Ricksha Arts of Bangladesh

Created and maintained by Joanna Kirkpatrick, a cultural and social anthropologist, this modest but attractive site celebrates a unique popular art of Bangladesh: "the paintings and decorations on the three-wheeled cycle ricksha or 'rickshaw.'" Based on Kirkpatrick's field visits between 1975 and 1998, this site offers an image collection of riotously colored and decorated rickshas, presented as thumbnails with brief descriptions. Also included at the site are some photos depicting commerce, street life, and religion in Bangladesh; some short readings; and a brief list of related links.
