This multi-color, rectangular wooden box is hand-carved and inlaid using a medieval form of artistry that existed in Egypt during the Islamic era. It is carefully inlaid with an iridescent-like mother of pearl inside and out, giving the box an extravagant, luxe look.
This lovely Islamic arabesque art style was quite popular in geometrical woodwork and saw great leaps in craftsmanship throughout the centuries. Harmonious, floral geometric patterns influenced by beautiful Islamic arabesque mosaics adorn the wooden box. Each piece is hand-inlaid individually on the item to create a unique pattern each time. It’s a reflection of the artist’s individuality and creativity. Each piece is different but still equally as beautiful.
This craft takes up to 250 hours of artisanal work. Mother of pearl or nacre is the biomaterial that forms inside the molluscan shells of the outer coat of pearls. The box is inlaid with almost iridescent-like shells.
The color of the mother of pearl shells is an effect of the heat and the water ecosystem. This lovely mosaic box can be used for storing your most precious items. It can also serve as a beautiful decorative piece or as a thoughtful and one-of-a-kind present. Own your very own geometrical box with a precious mother of pearl arabesque pattern unique to only it.
