Mother of Pearl work

The shining, playful, and reflected light of mother of pearl has attracted the attention of human beings since the beginning of the world. Societies, tribes, and nations have all added the technology of their day to their experience, knowledge, and understanding, and we have turned mother of pearl from one form into another.

It is known that mother of pearl and tortoiseshell were used in India in the 1560’s. In Indian Muslim objects however, ivory is predominant, and the gate of the Taj Mahal is a beautiful example of this.
