Khalid Ali orchestrates the merger of two of India's artistic traditions in the design of this jewelry box. Carved of mango wood, the box is adorned with colorful mosaics featuring the legendary zari brocade, once favored by Mughal emperors. Ali frames each mosaic with finely embossed flowers on nickel-plated brass, creating a spectacular contrast of colors and materials. Inside, the versatile box features a mirror and a removable tray.
About the Artist: "My father started a small workshop in 1959 where he crafted artistic furniture using brass foil embossing. He has been doing that for ages until I took over about a decade ago. Our designs are basically inspired from the ancient Mughal style. But today we incorporate modern motifs into the ancient technique and style. Though I've been in this field a long time, my ardent desire is to continue to grow. Right now I have about ten artisans assisting me, most of whom are relatives I have trained."
The Khalid Ali Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Khalid Ali in India. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
