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 him 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.

  • Interesting artifact

    The stone is beautiful and is accurately depicted in the photos. However, the craftsmanship is not what you'd expect; the joined edges are obvious; not polished to make them blend in and the joints could seriously use more glue. I would NOT use it for flowers or put water in it, as it leaks, but functional for a piece of art.

  • Alabaster vase

    sorry, can't write a good review for this. It's pretty but nothing fit straight, nothing matched, was a bit disappointed for sure, for the price.
