Story Behind the Art:
Mr. Abdel Nabi is a talented artisan whose life started in the Egyptian countryside. He moved to cairo with his family and learned his trade at a young age. His talent with alabaster also extends to stone and marble. It is common for young people to learn a trade as an apprentice, or 'saby' as they are called. Little by little he was able to purchase his own lathe and work independently. His workshop, although primitive, by most standards, has expanded to include a special machine to cut boulders, which allows his to purchase marble from the quarry directly. Working for the tourist market is different than the export market, but his talent and good eye allowed him to make this transition smoothly. Not everyone has the ability to look at a picture, and then create it in stone or marble. This is the special gift that he brings to our work.

  • Great Cheese Slab!

    This is a great cheese slab! The only negative is I was hoping it would look more like the picture, with lots of contrast. The piece we received has no black & just a tiny bit of white in it, but it is still very beautiful. I do realize that it's impossible to duplicate the exact piece shown, so we are overall happy.

  • Spectacularly Lovely!

    Great buy, using for a cheese board on my rosewood bar now as a decoration. Really a surprisingly "rich" looking product. If you entertain, a "must" buy! Simply fabulous!
