About the Artist: "I started this work with no background in terms of my family or training in this field. I have learned from my own experiences. I always wanted my profession to be related to the field of art. The art of making sandalwood boxes is extremely intricate and detail oriented, therefore it requires skilled workmanship. I am the guiding factor for my craftsmen, who create these exquisite boxes and other works based on my unique designs. My craftsmen and I are deeply involved with the making of sandalwood products, especially sandalwood boxes. We also use kadamwood on occasion. The making of these boxes requires a lot of devotion, patience and concentration as intricate handwork is done. Sandalwood has a unique natural fragrance, and is available only in a few parts of southern India."
