This ornate pharaonic table is handcrafted with the finest materials, lustrous mahogany wood and hand-inlaid with precious mother of pearl. Its intricate marble-like, mosaic top depicts a royal ancient Egyptian scene where two laborers are making offerings to King Osiris. They are asking for Osiris’ blessings and forgiveness.
The feather on the head of the first laborer symbolizes the purity of his heart as he is honest in his asking. The image is adorned with lotus flower, a traditional ancient Egyptian symbol of peace and love. The flowers are depicted alongside hieroglyphics spelling out Osiris. Also illustrated is a winged bird, a representation of the justice and balance associated with Osiris. Two additional historical depictions of offering rituals are depicted on the tabletop as well.
Nacre, Mother of pearl shell, is hand-inlaid on the table surface and its two sides. It enriches the table 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 music instruments. The natural Nacre tesserae are cut into small shapes then tinted with any color for decoration.
