The genre was revived and developed as a distinct genre of fine art painting by Vietnamese artists in the 1930s; the genre is known in Vietnamese as "sơn mài."

"Lacquer Head" is the first single from Primus' 1999 album, Antipop . The song features three verses that tell the tale of three different children, and the harm that comes to them from their huffing of inhalants. MTV banned the single's video for its drug references and purportedly 'violent content', despite the negative portrayal of the use of inhalants. This song was produced by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. While producing the track, Durst encouraged the band to return to the more aggressive sound of their earlier albums for Antipop.
