Inlay Wooden Elephant
The wooden inlay art of Hoshiarpur, Punjab, which originated around 300 years ago, is a craft of inserting pieces of different material such as bone, shell and wood in the base wooden item to form patterns which are typically found as furniture and decorative artifacts of Punjabi households. An inlay is a technique of inserting pieces of contrasting colors into hollowed-out spaces to form a design. It involves engraving foliage patterns, and simple everyday designs are inlaid with either acrylic, plastic, bronze or camel bone. The ivory inlaid products are most sought not just in India but all around the world which are followed by bone, metal and acrylic inlays.
The Shisham wood(North Indian Rosewood) is used due to its durability and resistance to warping. Traditional inlay work is usually done using brass or copper wire and Sheesham wood. The patterns are carved into the wood which are then wedged with brass wire or the inlay element.
Inlay work is not just used for furniture but also for long lasting printing stamps for block painting. Tables, chairs, table and home décor items with Moghul style inlay and floral patterns are very famous.
Elephants are calm and human-like creatures exhibiting care and emotions towards their kin.
