Summary

Illustrated with beautiful colour photos throughout, On Wings of Diesel takes us on a journey through the fascinating world of Pakistani truck decoration. Ornately adorned and considered as ┐moving art┐, these trucks - veritable roving exhibitions - depict all aspects of life and support a highly developed artisanal industry. Examining designs and motifs, the cultural significance of the practice, and the motivations of truck owners, Jamal J. Elias provides a unique window on Pakistan's complex society that addresses questions of culture and religion in an accessible and exciting way.
