To safely store those precious keeps in jewelry which you spend a fortune on, we have an equally charming box which matches the sophistication of your jewelry due to the elaborate detailing that it manifests. Small though it is, but this box proudly sits on a stand flaunting its detailed floral engravings which are unmatched in the modern era, when artisans are fleeing away from the crafts. The profound engraving opens upto a compartment, a resting place for those precious pieces. This beauty of a jewelry box has a shallow undercut, meaning that the engravings rise upto a few inches from the base of the box. The exqusitely hand crafted storage space displays a plethora of flowers, which takes a Naqash more than a month to carve out.
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. He, along with his group of artisans believes in restoring the glory of walnut wood artistry to what it was 50 years ago. The artisan specializes in undercuts (Khokurdar), Jalidar, Deep carving (vobreivith) and shallow carving (sadikaem) - practices which have more or less been abandoned by Kashmiri artisans in the modern era.
