  • Box with Vegetal Forms · The Walters Art Museum · Works of Art
    This ivory box is a pastiche of several different carved panels While one cannot be certain when it was put together the panels probably date from the 17th century Even though the side panels do not seem to match and have different designs the quality of the deep carving is of a uniformly high standard Almost all the motifs are vegetal in nature consisting of boldly delineated rhizomes or scrolling vines with flowers and acanthus leaves The only segment that has integrity and harmony of design is the top of the lid which along the bottom front panel and keyhole may have been part of the original box Although not a religious object this box reflects an interest in flora similar to representations of nature deities It is possible that the original box was carved in northern India for an affluent Muslim patron perhaps crafted for a noble lady to store her jewelry and personal effects Provenance John and Berthe Ford Baltimore date and mode of acquisition unknown Walters Art Museum 2002 by gift Credit Gift of John and Berthe Ford 2002 Download Image Add to Collection Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Creative Commons License Add to Collection Connect
