Embracing the heritage of his native Kashmir, artisan Niyaz blends Persian influences with the rich crafts of his region in this decorative box. Layering papier mache over kail wood, Niyaz creates this work by skillfully painting floral motifs that include sunflower, rose, lily, lotus, tulip and jasmine varieties, employing techniques that he has been perfecting since he began painting at the age of fifteen. Lined with velvet, jewelry, keepsakes, or any important objects can rest safely in this lovely box.
