The family had moved into a new house recently. Used indoors in the old house, to store clothes, this sandook was placed in the cattle shed of the new house. It was used to store items not required for everyday use. It was made of wood and clad with thin metal sheets. Stamped metal embellishments were fixed at the centre of each grid on the front facade.
