Jewelry Box, 2008
Wild Pear Wood
8"h x 12"w x 8"d
Looking at a single block of pear wood, Nairi Safaryan saw the unusual jewelry box featuring once again the grape vines of his native Armenia. Grape canes support the body of this box carved with the stems, fruit and branches of the grapevine.
This box is carved from one piece of pear wood found in Armenia, home of the artist.
