Damascene Octagon Platter

Yet another fascinating testimony to the journey of art, most likely along the silk route. This popular talisman is a beautiful example of damascene silver inlay on metal. The ornamentation is inspired by traditional Berber motifs and the mosaic of the Roman ruins at Volubilis. Perfected by Moroccan master craftsmen who, it is believed, historically learnt their craft from artisans in Damascus, Syria. The striking resemblance to Bidri work from North Karnataka, India, is equally fascinating and could possibly be traced to the exchange of art and ideas during those flourishing decades of trade.

This particular platter can be wall-mounted or would look equally great displayed on a stand.
