Story Behind the Art

Oriental alabaster products have been made in the same workshop for the past 12 years. Mr. Mahmoud Abdel Nabi was born in the Egyptian countryside but moved to Cairo and grew up there from an early age. Mr. Abdel Nabi has worked in the field of marble, alabaster and stone for most of his adult life. It is thought the ancient city of Alabastros gave alabaster its moniker. The ancient Pharaohs utilized this marble in many aspects of their daily lives and religious ceremonies. Its use in Egypt has been carried down to the present day. Giving work to people is called 'opening homes' in Egypt. To be able to help people by giving them work, is not only a responsibility, but a pleasure.
