The Zindagi Migzara (Life Goes On): Handmade Papier-Mâché box

This handcrafted piece by a renowned artist is a must-have in any space. The box has been carefully made over several weeks using an age-old method that has its origins in Persia. The artwork on the box uses pure silver strokes and is infused with the sense of transient beauty that artists from Kashmir, India uniquely bring. In Persian, the phrase ‘Zindagi Migzara’ (after which we have named this box) means life goes on. There’s a sadness and strength in that phrase. Let this box contain everything that is special, useful, or even meaningless to you. Let this piece be your altar for the beautiful ordinariness of a life well-lived.
