Elephants march in a row through the dense forest in this jewelry box by M. Ayub. Surrounded by intricately sculpted foliage, the stalwart animals move in stately unison. Carved by hand of walnut wood, the box features two interior compartments lined with velvet; the inside of the lid shows a floral motif. The box also features a magic lock 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.
The 14th Wedding Anniversary is the ivory anniversary. Of course, I opted for an elephant themed symbolism. This jewelry box is gorgeous! The detail is amazing, and the pictures can't do it justice. My wife loved it!
