Ayub; M. Ayub was born in the valley of Kashmir. "It was our family tradition to work with walnut wood," he says. "I have pursued this craft since I learned it as a boy. Today, this is a dying craft. Walnut wood is obtained from very old and, at times, dead walnut trees dried for two to three years. The pieces are completely carved by hand and no artificial color is ever used. They are rubbed with stone before a wax polish is applied. Each piece requires a colossal investment of time and dedication."
