Created from the Intricate Inlay series, this Mirror Jewel is a marvel to the eye. It has been said of the Mughals that they designed like giants and finished like jewelers. The ethereal quality and dazzling expanse of the Taj Mahal stands testament to this fact, a legacy of lost love and eternal beauty. In this design style, decorative inlay designs included intricately carved floral patterns and entwining geometric shapes embedded with finely colored precious and semi-precious stones, which responded with extraordinary subtlety to changing light and weather. This unique piece of ornate architectural inlay was captured by French photographer Gérard de George.
