    A handmade wooden plate inlaid with mother of pearl (measures 8 inches wide).

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