Story Behind the Art:
India artisans Suresh and Devender Garg are woodcarvers who also work in marble. Unfortunately Suresh passed away in 2011 and Devender preserves his memory through their art. 'We started this venture dating back almost four decades ago.' Suresh told us, 'I started with ivory and switched to sandalwood. The art of making sandalwood boxes is extremely intricate and detail oriented, thus requiring skilled workmanship. I am the guiding factor for my craftsmen, who create exquisite boxes based on my designs. The intricate carving is done with an iron needle.'
