All the intricate inlay work here is done by hand in traditional ways. The man on the right is shaping tiny fragments of coloured stone on a grinding wheel. The man on the left is working on the inlay itself.
I'd be glued to this scene! The work is so amazing.

Simple and great technique! A piece of a stick with a string and rotating the grinding wheel.

@olivetreeann Yes, it was fascinating to watch it all going on. And not a machine in sight.

@taffy Absolutely. Hard to get your head around how long those TM inlays must've taken and the skill that went into them.
