For Gulam Rasool, soapstone's natural grain evokes an elephant's wrinkled hide. He carves this box by hand in the shape of three elephants, painting more pachyderms on the sides. Silken caps and blankets identify them as the king's own animals. The elongated box is designed to hold incense sticks, with perforations to let the fragrance perfume the room. Three holes at one end are designed to hold the sticks when burning.

"Perfect Present"

I bought this for my wife and we were both delighted. Delivery was very quick and communication was reassuring throughout the ordering process. When the package arrived the gift wrapping exceeded my expectations and my wife was very impressed. The product itself is well-made and beautiful.

"Better than I expected!"

Purchsed this soap stone incense box for my daughter's bday ( she loves elephant motif) and the package came wrapped in this heavy, flecked, cream colored paper with a tapestry cloth ribbon! So beautiful! But even better is the incense box - the soap stone is thick and weighty, wonderfully carved and the painting is so delicate! OUTSTANDING quality! Thank you!

"King's Elephant Soapstone Incent box"

This is a fun and special. Great for a home with children - show them the wonder of India! The color and action of the 2 levels of elephants really stand out. The box is very long, so any and all incense can be stored - plus the scent waft through the slits. Well made and highly recommended.

"Desktop Elephants"

I absolutely love these little guys and have it on my desk and use it for pens and pencils. The smaller ones can be used for paper clips, rubber bands, etc. Keeps things neat and orderly with a touch of style. Have had mine a good while now and it looks like the day I got it.
