Description

This little marble owl is hand carved from a single block of white marble and made pretty with semi-precious stones. It a gorgeous little piece that can be used to decorate any corner of the home you please and added to your little bird collection. It can also be used as a paperweight or as a whimsy house warming present.

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.
