Hand-carved with sublime artistry, this jewelry box is truly a masterpiece by India's M.Ayub. He works with seasoned walnut wood, masterfully detailing flowers blossoming with wild enchantment. The box features a secret locking mechanism and can be opened by sliding the lower front panel of the box to the right side. Inside there are two compartments, one designed for rings. The box is lined with red velvet.
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.
