Tarakashi Wooden Engraved Decorative Box with Fine Brass Inlay Work. An elegant and classy artifact, hand crafted by artisans from Uttar Pradesh. Beautiful as a curio and great to hold trinkets and things, this can be a perfect gift too! Tarkashi is an extremely beautiful craft form that hails from Uttar Pradesh found favour with the Mughals in the 16th century and entails the inlaying of brass, copper or silver wires in wood. Tarakashi work is done on dark coloured and seasoned sheesham wood. The high oil content of this wood allows the inlaid metal to be held securely. The process of inlaying metal into wood carvings is laborious and highly skilled. Thin strips cut from sheet metal are heated over a flame, cooled and straightened. The resultant metal strip is beaten into the previously created design grooves with a hammer. The surface is then evened out, treated and machine buffed that renders a smooth polish and shine to the inlaid metal.
