History of Inlay Art------------ The birth of Inlay Art began in Florence, Italy during the 16th Century. This was known as PIETRA DURA.(Pietra= Stone, Dura= Hard) The Art of Inlay was brought to India by the Mughals in the 17th Century especially in Agra City. Introduced to India during the regime of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan Inlay Art was very popular in architecture as well as in sculptures. White marble monuments incorporated with Inlay Artwork were also constructed. The most famous & well-known being the Taj Mahal. ****************Process of Marble Inlay Art--------- It is a closely protected traditional art and only a few expert exponents are available today. The delicate process involves cutting and engraving marble shapes manually. To start with, a predefined pattern e.g., floral design or geometrical design is engraved on the marble slab. Small pieces of semi precious stones are shaped and polished by means of an emery wheel to fit in these grooves precisely. These small pieces are then slipped in the grooves and are glued with white chemical made from oil, lead oxide and wax. Once the design is completely dry, the piece is polished with a mixture of sand, water and emery paper to give a shiny smooth finish. The semiprecious stones inlaid are as follows______________ 1. Lapis lazuli ---------- Blue stone. 2. Malachite ---------- Green stone. 3. Turquoise ---------- Light Blue. 4. Carnelian ---------- Orange Red. 5. Mother of Pearl ---------- White shiny. 6. Eblone Shell ---------- Colorful Shiny. 7. Jasper ---------- Brown.
