Details

Ruffled rosettes crown an elephant who wears the jingling harness of the royal stables. Carved in dainty jali, or openwork, her tummy reveals a perfect miniature elephant inside--and yet an even tinier one inside of that! Gulam Rasool masterfully sculpts the elegant pachyderms of natural soapstone.

"Beautiful little mama!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Simply stunning workmanship! I was amazed by the obvious ability that this artist has. I was a bit disappointed that the soapstone is a mushroomy-lilac sort of color when it is advertised as ivory but the disclaimer states that their may be variations in the soapstone color. I guess that I was just hoping that it might be a warmer color as it would go with my decor a bit better.
