    A handmade photo frame made from wood inlaid with mother of pearl (measures 20cm by 720m).

    The photo frame is hand-crafted in Egypt using specialist techniques to inlay the mother of pearl onto the wood, requiring extraordinary talent and patience.

    The mother of pearl is cut into different shapes and then individually applied to form the complex geometrical design. The interior is lined with velvet.

    The frame is characterised by its longevity. Each frame may take several days to complete, and becomes a work of art to be cherished.
