Mother of Pearl
Persians loved art and along came with them the rarest and the ornate art technique, which we all know as the Marble Inlay, all the way from Florence, Italy. It was around the 17th century, when the then King Shah Jehan called in the top notch artists from all over the world to create one of the most phenomenal graves for his beloved wife to rest in peace. Shah Jehan was an ardent appreciator of inlaid art form and gave a lot of boost to this during his reign. This king had qualms whatsoever about spending a huge amount to get what he really wanted. If you ever get a chance to visit the Agra Fort ever in your lifetime, you would be able to notice his love for pure white marble. The place where he used to sit to address his council of ministers and other people in general is made of pure white marble. So, was his love for the art that he built the most beautiful and the most expensive grave for his beloved wife to rest in peace. When the king himself died, even he was made to rest in peace besides his beloved. Yes, that right it is none other than the Taj Mahal, which is also one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Shah Jehan wanted that this kind of architectural magnificence should never be created again so he decided to cut the hands of the 20,000 plus artisans who worked to build the Taj.
The whole process results into the realisation of an incredible masterpiece that is made through rare skill that the artisans possess. This art is carried out by the same old technique and the tools that were used during the Mughal era and are still pretty much the same, as no modern machine can give as amazing results that the artisans do manually. We at Pushiv Exports intend and have by far managed to preserve the art in its most original form. This in fact is sort of an achievement for us because you might find many in the business that employ modern machinery to give shape to this art. The end result of course shall not be the same. The detailing that can be achieved through primitive, but useful tools cannot be done by any other form.
Each piece is designed very carefully by our artisans keeping in mind that something new and exquisite has to be created and fulfil the requirements given by the clients. The inlay process or Pachikari starts with artist drawing symmetric sections in the marble panel. This is done by Mughal Era tools. A sketch is been made on a scale of 1:1.
The drawing is made on a brass sheet, which is been shaped by a specialist to create the templates for each aspect of the design. When this is done, then the work is to pick and choose the semi precious stones for the designed motifs.
Now, the plan is executed by a team of artists who is responsible for accomplishing a single phase of the entire process. It starts with the lapidary artisans shaping the chosen stones with the help of a manual tool, popularly known as the “Saan and the Kamaani”. A lot of precision is needed to carve the gem stones into beautiful motifs.
This is done by keeping the gems between the finger tips and scraped through the emery wheel, which is run manually using a rod of cane that is attached with a leather band. The magnificence of the hand and wheel coordination gives us the required shape of the gem stones.
This process can take from some weeks to a few years depending on the kind of project in hand. Once this is done the job is then given to the other artists who then set the gems to be inlaid in the marble. The carved gem stones are then arranged on the panel at the marked positions. They are then removed and put aside.
Now, with the help of the chisels the marble is been engraved with utmost care, so as to dig out grooves that match the size of the gem stones. It is not at all easy as the Indian marble is not easy to work with.
Special glue is then used to inlay the stones in their grooves. Finally to give the finishing touches to the product the marble then goes for the polishing. At last it then goes through the checking process after which the items become ready to be shipped to its rightful owner.
