Details

For Gulam Rasool, soapstone's natural grain evokes an elephant's wrinkled hide. He carves this box by hand in the shape of an elephant, painting more pachyderms on the sides. Silken caps and blankets identify them as the king's own animals.

I absolutely love this piece. The colors are vivid. The simple fact he has an eyeball brings him to life. He really pops on my display table. I love the postcard and booklet that comes with the piece. Makes me feel like Ive met the artist.

"Well made beautiful box"

This box is heavy and of great quality. I use it on a decorative tea towel on a piece of furniture to keep the towel in place. It?s quite a conversation topic. I love the colors as well.
