The olive tree, which is common in the Mediterranean Basin (Greece, Asia Minor, and North Africa), inspired this lovely olive branch nut dish.
Aram, whose name in Hindi translates to "gently, with peace, with love and care," remembers, "The olive branch has always held a powerful meaning for me representing both peace and victory. In designing functional objects with natural forms, there is a mingled sense of fragility and intensity. For me, it is like nature spreading through my interior spaces – like a magical olive grove sweetly willing its way into my home."
Made entirely by hand in New Dehli using traditional metalworking techniques, no two examples ever exactly the same.
A wonderful gift, this nut dish is equally comfortable in contemporary as well as in more classical interiors.

Because olive trees are native to the Mediterranean Basin, a range of olive branch themed gifts were selected for the gift shop accompanying the exhibition, Church: A Painter's Pilgrimage, which will be at the Detroit Institute of Arts from October 22, 2017 — January 15, 2018.
