"Magnificent Dresser Centrepiece"

How on earth do you do it? She is beautiful. To get all that detail on the outside is a stroke of genius, but the triplets as well takes this treasured piece tho a whole new level of craftsmanship

"This Elephant is Better than Described"

I purchased one of these a few years ago. A few days ago, it was broken by a house cleaner. Inside were 6 additional elephants, rather than the 3 listed in the description. Four increasingly smaller elephants were standing on top of each other, and inside the two elephants on the bottom were two additional elephants! I cant even imagine the degree of skill needed to carve and elephant, inside of an elephant, inside of an elephant all out of stone and through such tiny holes. I have always loved this. I was happy to see that there were two remaining, because I just ordered a replacement. The artist is to be commended. Gulam Rasool is very, very talented.
