Growing wild and rampant, leafy vines envelope this jewelry box with admirable artistry. M. Ayub carves the relief work from a single block of walnut wood, achieving extraordinary details. The 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.
"?Rampant Nature? jewel box"
It is a substantial, solid walnut, beautiful jewel box. I so appreciate the ancient techniques this artist M. Ayub uses and preserves. The wood carving has a glow I have never seen before, and there is no chemical/lacquer smell at all because he only uses natural polishing methods. Very rare to find pieces like this today. Thank you M. Ayub for sharing your artistry and the hard work from your hands. Blessings to you.
