Pharaonic box is hand-crafted with master quality mahogany wood that is known for its hardness and its ability to bear any pressure. The box is inlaid with rare mother of pearl that is delicately painted with natural colors and laid in piece by piece.
Nacre, Mother of pearl shell, is hand-inlaid to create harmonious geometric patterns. It enriches the box with a marble colorful effect. Mother of pearl shell is a natural kind of decoration that is extracted from the biomaterial that forms inside molluscan shells, as well as it makes up the outer coating of pearls. It has multiple uses in architecture, fashion, and musical instruments. The natural Nacre tesserae are cut into small shapes then tinted with any color for decoration.
This unique box is ornamented with a divine pharaonic moment of affection between King Tut and his wife. She is depicted is comforting her husband by rubbing his shoulder with oil under the blessings of Ra, the god of the sun. This scene is adorned with hieroglyphics and lotus flowers, a symbol of peace and love in Ancient Egyptian mythology
