Mesmerizing floral designs blossom with a natural sense of symmetry on the surface of this jewelry box. The meticulous motifs are carved by hand, each detail complementing the rich grain of walnut wood. M. Ayub presents the piece as an elegant expression of ancient Kashmiri artistry. Equipped with sturdy brass hinges, the velvet-lined box possesses a removable shelf with a convenient hiding place for rings or other small items. The box features a secret locking mechanism and can be opened by sliding the lower front panel of the box to the right side.
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.
