Perched in a tree filled with flowers, hummingbirds bring their magic to this lovely design. M. Ayub demonstrates his mastery in fine Indian walnut wood, its hard beauty a challenge to wood carvers. The sleek oval coffer is lined in velvet and features a lift out tray with a special place for rings. 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.
This box will be highly regarded in a collection of boxes obtained from around the world. The craftsmanship is both beautiful and amazing! Will consider this artisan in future purchases.
