"This Elephant is Better than Described"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased one of these a few years ago. A few days ago, it was broken by a house cleaner. Inside were 6 additional elephants, rather than the 3 listed in the description. Four increasingly smaller elephants were standing on top of each other, and inside the two elephants on the bottom were two additional elephants! I cant even imagine the degree of skill needed to carve and elephant, inside of an elephant, inside of an elephant all out of stone and through such tiny holes. I have always loved this. I was happy to see that there were two remaining, because I just ordered a replacement. The artist is to be commended. Gulam Rasool is very, very talented.

How on earth do you do it? She is beautiful. To get all that detail on the outside is a stroke of genius, but the triplets as well takes this treasured piece tho a whole new level of craftsmanship
