Lavish leaves and flowers dance excitedly on this walnut wood box, guarding the treasures hidden in two interior compartments. M. Ayub hand-carves the delicate patterns with intricate detail, demonstrating skills learned from his forefathers. Lined in velvet, the box is perfect for jewelry and other keepsakes. The box features a magic lock and can be opened by sliding the lower front panel of the box to the right side.
Carving walnut wood is a passion for M. Ayub. He loves every aspect of this traditional art that was taught to him as a boy. A single piece can take many years for him to create; the wood must be gathered and carefully preserved before the carving can even begin. Once carved, it must be hand-rubbed with agate stone to produce a beautiful refined finish. M. Ayub finds that many younger people do not have the patience for this craft and he fears that it is a dying art. He is dedicated to encouraging and motivating others to continue this magnificent Indian traditional craft and he stands ready to teach those willing to learn.
M. Ayub proudly provides for the education of his son and daughter.
Stunning jewelry box proving that machine-made, manufactured goods can never match the exquisite natural beauty that is transferred to a work of art via the love, heritage, skill, and dedication of a time-honored, traditional master-craftsman!!! Thank you!!!
