An intricate floral design emerges from the natural grain of walnut wood, creating a textured impression of Indian artistry. M. Ayub crafts and carves the piece by hand, its intoxicating elegance an expression of time-honored techniques. The box is lined in velvet, and the top deck is removable.
About the Artist: M. Ayub was born in the valley of Kashmir. "It was our family tradition to work with walnut wood," he says. "I have pursued this craft since I learned it as a boy. Today, this is a dying craft. Walnut wood is obtained from very old and, at times, dead walnut trees dried for two to three years. The pieces are completely carved by hand and no artificial color is ever used. They are rubbed with stone before a wax polish is applied. Each piece requires a colossal investment of time and dedication."
The M. Ayub Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by M. Ayub in India. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
