This is a wooden painting box used by Hung Liu. The box has three extendable legs attached to one side that fold up parallel to the box when not in use. The box opens lengthwise to show a partitioned area for holding paining supplies on the bottom and a place to hold canvas or paper on the top. The contents of the box include two tubes of paint, a paintbrush, four plastic paint tube caps, and approximately 26 pieces of charcoal.

This painting box was commissioned by Hung Liu in the early 1970s.
