Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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.

"Beautiful Box But Lock is a Pain"

Let me start by saying the artist did an amazing job carving this box. The detail is beautiful and I do love it. He is quite talented. I'm giving it 3 stars because of its functionality. The locking mechanism is a pain. I broke the inside of the box trying to open it. The piece that locks it snapped right off. Apparently I didn't slide the secret panel enough and when I forced the lid up it snapped. I thought maybe it wouldn't open because it had too much lacquer. I had to force the panel so hard to get it to finish opening and to close it. Very bad idea. It is not an easy mechanism to move. Maybe mine is defective but I broke the inside trying to do it so now I can't even return it. It's too expensive to be this difficult. I recommend looking at one of the artist's other boxes that don't lock like this. If it wasn't for the lock it would be a great decorative box.

Craig

Wow. Great work. My wife loved it. The craftsmanship was above and beyond what I expected.

Jason

Just received my wonderfully packaged Kashmiri Valley locking jewelry box. Beautiful craftsmanship and finish--I would buy from A. Ayub again, without question.

Eugene

Artist M. Ayub must be one of the most talented wood carving artists on the planet. His work is so intricate, detailed, and lifelike, that I consider his carvings (such as his jewelry boxes, which I use to store many treasures) the best investment that I can make in art! Thank you for your beautiful work, M. Ayub.
