The exclusive wall hanging is the creative genius of an old aged artisan who crafts wonders out of plain planks of walnut wood by chiselling the finest and most intricate of Kashmiri motifs all around it. The masterpiece takes him more than a month to complete as he works its deeply carved details from dawn to dusk.

Ghulam Nabi Dar is a 63 year old master craftsman who strives to revive the lost craftsmanship of the valley by carving out unmatched beauties in walnut wood which take him up to six months to complete.
