Nestled smugly on sturdy vines, birds camouflage their feathers with leaves growing wild. They adorn a magnificent walnut wood jewelry box carved by hand by M. Ayub with sublime detail. Inside, 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.
So pleased with the beauty and quality of this jewelry box! Heavy weight, and carefully finished inside and out. The carvings are very detailed and so carefully deeply cut into the wood. Very talented artist. Had been looking for a jewelry box for my niece and I couldn't be more pleased with this choice!
