There's something truly and genuinely magical about what that man is doing, and I hope his nephew and anyone else willing to learn carries on this ancient tradition craft. ♥️

Everything about the ancient skills is magical, everything an artisan creates is a part of him or herself. It’s sad that not more young ones want to learn the ancient skills and so many of the ancient art forms are fading away 😢

You can tell he truly loves his craft when he said "my work is conserving it, money is just a reward."

The design he's shown working on, was already labor-intensive to begin with. Then the intensity snowballed, and I was totally mindblown at

I understand why this is a dying art, but this guy clearly enjoys his work and whilst there are people who want to invest in these works of art, surely someone wants to learn.

The drawings are very intricate in itself. I always wondered where mother of pearl comes from. Turban snails I caught plenty on ACNH. Abalone shells are equally pretty. Great pieces of art takes time. I love to have studio close to nature and not surrounded by screaming and yelling or rude people put their awful music on for hours on end.

This is not my aesthetic at all, but I am profoundly moved at how this artist can take such basic materials and turn them into such stunningly beautiful objects. Best to him.

First time found the video so soothing & positive vibe. Saw similar shell work by Korean bagmaker with machines, looked beautiful but handwork have the rugged touch with slight imperfections which make every piece unique.❤️❤️❤️

Mother of pearl is quite often used is decorating guitars. It is used to mark the frets from behind the strings, and above, on the neck for the guitarist to see. It can also be used for the tunings pegs and to decorate the edges of the guitar as well. It is quite a beautiful addition, and I had no idea it was made from shells.

Wow, that stuff is amazing! Some of the stuff they do in the series is not as pretty as it is interesting, but this artwork is truly beautiful.
