How it’s made:
The semi-precious stones are sourced from all over the world, cut in precise patterns and then inlaid by hand into the marble surface. This handicraft artform is called Parchinkari and is found only in the city of Agra, India. It is inspired partly by the Italian artform of Pietra-Dura (stone inlaid in stone). It has strong ties to the Taj Mahal in India where this art is depicted in copious amounts on the main gate and especially on the cenotaphs of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and Empress Mumtaz Mahal.
So, add this absolutely unique piece to your coffee table and be ready for the compliments that follow from your family and guests.
