What is Marble Inlay Work?

“Marble Inlay work” is one of the most attractive art that done from marble.
Same type of that adorns the Taj Mahal and other Mughal monuments.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 marble of
different shades are cut delicately to fit in these grooves precisely. These
small pieces are then slipped in the grooves. Apart from marble, many other
materials can also be used.

History of Inlay Art:

Inlay work on delicate precious stone began in the workshops of Florence in
Italy around the end of the 16th century. This was known as PIETRA
DURA.(Pietra= Stone, Dura= Hard) The Italians had created a classic artistic
form and held a monopoly over it. From 1630 onward pietra dura appeared on
moveable, small objects as decorative panels, with bird and flower motifs,
suitable for cabinet fronts and table tops. Some of these soon reached the
Mughals in the form of presents. Of all the Mughal Emperors, Shah Jahan was the
greatest patron of architecture in India. For him no amount of money or time
was too much to create enduring, everlasting architectural beauty and through
it be remembered always. It is in his buildings that one feels most compelled
to make the connection between Mughal art and pietra dura. The Taj Mahal, the
cenotaphs of the Emperor and his wife, the main floor and the surrounding
marble railings bear very close resemblances to the pietra dura form.
