Inlay work

One of the most attractive work of art that comes from marble is“Marble Inlay” work. It is the same work that adorns the Taj Mahal and other Mughal monuments.

It is a closely protected traditional art and only a few expert exponents are available today. The delicate process involves cutting and engraving marble shapes manually. To start with, a predefined pattern e.g., floral design or geometrical design is engraved on the marble slab. Small pieces of marble of different shades are cut delicately to fit in these grooves precisely. These small pieces are then slipped in the grooves. Apart from marble, many other materials can also be used.
