I bought these as a Christmas gift for family members. I had a hard time not keeping them for myself, since I love elephant art objects. These are wonderful carvings.

"Storage"

An attractive way to store items. Right now I keep it open housing bottles of essential oils (atop a lining of paper towels). Every day it is beautiful to behold. Ordered a second different box because of the quality.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Close to his eightieth birthday, Gulam continues the art he learned from his elders. His father was an marble carver and jali artisan honored with the state award for excellence. Gulam has been honored with the same distinction. He still works alongside his son and other artisans to whom he has taught this craft, and treasures the role he plays in continuing this important Indian artistic tradition.

Gulam Rasool has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $1800.

Nearing his eighth decade, master stone sculptor Gulam Rasool continues to provide for his family, especially his grandchildren.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Gulam is proud to be able to help provide for his grandchildren's education.
