Description
Ruffled rosettes crown an elephant who wears the jingling harness of the royal stables. Carved in dainty jali, or openwork, her tummy reveals a perfect miniature elephant inside--and yet an even tinier one inside of that! Gulam Rasool masterfully sculpts the elegant pachyderms of natural soapstone.

    Beautiful little mama!

    Simply stunning workmanship! I was amazed by the obvious ability that this artist has. I was a bit disappointed that the soapstone is a mushroomy-lilac sort of color when it is advertised as ivory but the disclaimer states that their may be variations in the soapstone color. I guess that I was just hoping that it might be a warmer color as it would go with my decor a bit better.

    She is a wonderful addition to my elephant collection. Her tiny baby carved inside her belly is a wonder.
