Details

For Gulam Rasool, soapstone's natural grain evokes an elephant's wrinkled hide. He carves this box by hand in the shape of three elephants, painting more pachyderms on the sides. Silken caps and blankets identify them as the king's own animals. The elongated box is designed to hold incense sticks, with perforations to let the fragrance perfume the room. Three holes at one end are designed to hold the sticks when burning.

"Better than I expected!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Purchsed this soap stone incense box for my daughters bday ( she loves elephant motif) and the package came wrapped in this heavy, flecked, cream colored paper with a tapestry cloth ribbon! So beautiful! But even better is the incense box - the soap stone is thick and weighty, wonderfully carved and the painting is so delicate! OUTSTANDING quality! Thank you!

I bought this for my wife and we were both delighted. Delivery was very quick and communication was reassuring throughout the ordering process. When the package arrived the gift wrapping exceeded my expectations and my wife was very impressed. The product itself is well-made and beautiful.

"Desktop Elephants"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I absolutely love these little guys and have it on my desk and use it for pens and pencils. The smaller ones can be used for paper clips, rubber bands, etc. Keeps things neat and orderly with a touch of style. Have had mine a good while now and it looks like the day I got it.

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.

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.
