Smooth panels of natural walnut wood are framed with intricate floral motifs, carved by hand. M. Ayub crafts a delightful octagonal jewelry box. The lid is adorned with birds resting under a tree. Lined with velvet, the box features a lift-out tray and closes with a lock and key (included).
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.
