Ebony is a dense black hardwood, derived from the Ancient Egyptian hbny. It is dense enough to sink in water and it is finely-textured and has a very smooth finish when polished, making it valuable as an ornamental wood. Ebony also has a long history of use, with carved pieces having been found in Ancient Egyptian tombs. By the end of the 16th century, fine cabinets for the luxury trade were made of ebony. The wood's dense hardness lent itself to refined moldings framing finely detailed carvings in very low relief (bas-relief), usually of allegorical subjects, or with scenes taken from classical history.
This classically elegant piece took 1.5 months to finish with 7 designers and craftsmen involved at various stages.
