Nestled within a florid wonderland, birds chirp warm greetings. M. Ayub designs the lavish composition, which he then carves by hand with admirable detail. The walnut wood jewelry box is lined with velvet and features a removable tray. The box also features a secret locking mechanism 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 an 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.
"Gorgeous jewelry box!"
The detail and care in the carvings on this box are really beautiful - and more than I had hoped for! Lovely work and I'm so happy with this purchase - it's a privilege to have a piece by this artist. The interior of the box is finished very carefully and will enhance any jewelry or keepsake it contains. I was looking for a jewelry box for my granddaughter as a graduation memento, and this is perfect for what I wanted.
- Box for keeping jewelry, treasures, keepsakes
