Spring flowers envelop this alluring walnut wood jewelry box, zealously guarding treasures in its velvet-lined interior and lift-out tray. The box features a secret locking mechanism, and the box is unlocked by sliding its lower front panel to the right. M. Ayub hand carves the delicate patterns with intricate detail, exhibiting the skills he has proudly inherited from his forefathers.
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.
