Details

Ruffled rosettes crown an elephant who wears the jingling harness of the royal stables. Carved in dainty jali, or openwork, her tummy reveals a perfect miniature elephant inside--and yet an even tinier one inside of that! Gulam Rasool masterfully sculpts the elegant pachyderms of natural soapstone.
