Details

Carved from a single piece of walnut wood, this jewelry box features the sinuous beauty of a dragon. A symbol of good fortune, the mythical creature appears again on both sides. M. Ayub crafts the piece with upper and lower compartments, lined in velvet, and polishes the wood with an agate stone and wax. The box features a secret locking mechanism and can be opened by sliding the lower front panel of the box to the right side.

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.

"My daughter-in-law loves this."

I had a lot of fun surprising my relative who loves dragons with this. It detail and depth of carving was like something from the middle ages. She loves it.

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.
