    • Materials: Soapstone
    • Dimensions: 2.2 inches high x 4.5 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    Indian artisan Raj Kumari comes from Uttar Pradesh. 'My parents arranged my marriage to Raja Ram Singh, and I love my husband very much,' she says. 'Since he is from Agra, I moved there. He worked in marble art and, after our children grew up, he began to teach me the art of marble carving. The Taj Mahal is a great source inspiration to us and we try to replicate its beauty through our work. In our workshop, my husband I craft sculptures, jewelry boxes, coasters, trays and other designs.'
