Beautiful carved setting on this mother of pearl shell. This specific mother of pearl shell has a very warming hue with natural shades of green, purple and yellow throughout. The colors of the shell come to show very vibrantly when placed in front of a window and the sun shines through. Words cannot come close to describe the beauty of this shell when the sun hits it from behind. The carving of the flowers, bird and mountain landscape come to life.

The shell is engraved by Balinese craftsmen, who have mastered the art of carving and has been passed down the skills by his forefathers.
Comes with black metal stand.
