This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Looking toward the ancient past, Riyas creates a vintage-style box, handcrafted of pinewood and covered with papier mache. Painted by hand, a Mughal emperor surveys his kingdom, and landscapes decorate the sides of the box.

Product Features:
  • Colors: Green, white
  • Materials: Papier mache, pinewood
  • Dimensions: 1.4 inches high x 5 inches long x 3 inches wide

Story Behind the Art:
Born in Kashmir, Riyas enjoyed growing up surrounded by traditional crafts and the natural beauty of his town. Riyas works with his older brother Iqbal on developing new jewelry boxes. 'We are always trying to bring something new to our art. Earlier, paper mache was mostly about scenic and animal themes. However, as per customer demands, we are always doing something new. The Mughal-themed boxes that we do have been widely appreciated.'

    This decorative immediately caught my eye while browsing. I have many older boxes of assorted styles and craftsmanship, so this Mughal style box remained empty, perched on a bookshelf in the company of the wondrous writer and missed, Molly Ivins. I was in need of a container to put some jewelry I bought for my still beautiful sister for her 70th birthday. My lack of skill wrapping presents, presents an awful first impression to whomever the recipient be. But when we spoke on the phone, she was bubbling over with compliments on the beauty of the box and notifying me it was now locked in their glass cabinet with other objects d'arte. The Mughal box has its own Taj Mahal in a house which could qualify for a spread in Architectural Digest. Both she and her husband have been in the photography business for at least thirty five years each, thus compliments from a expert in pleasurable viewing experiences, speaks volumes. And now I have discovered a way to avoid wrapping gifts. Ed P.
