Detailed Description:
 
Khātam (Persian: خاتم‎‎) is an ancient Persian technique of inlaying. It is a version of marquetry where art forms are made by decorating the surface of wooden articles with delicate pieces of wood, bone and metal precisely-cut intricate geometric patterns. Common materials used in the construction of inlaid articles are gold, silver, brass, aluminum and twisted wire. It is currently a dying art and Rumi's Garden has commissioned master craftsmen in Iran to create these beautiful gems.
