This box is made of Sandalwood and has a beautiful Rosewood veneer. It has a wonderful raised Sandalwood panel to the lid with hand carved Elephants and Trees, plus further raised Sandalwood panels on all four sides. The Elephant's trunks are pointing upwards, this is symbolic for Good Luck.
There is a miniature mosaic frame surrounding the panel on the lid, plus strips of miniature mosaics on all 4 sides of the box and to the lid. This intricate mosaic decoration is known as 'Sadeli'.
