PARCHINKARI - is the art of inlaying semi-precious stones in marble which began in India in the early 17th century with Shah Jahan (5th Mughal emperor) being its patron and pioneer. This art is derived from an Italian art form known as pietra dura (hard stones) which originated in Florence in the 16th century. It involves shaping small pieces of semi-precious stones in the form of leaves, flowers, petals etc. and fitting them together so that they look like one complete flower or animal or the shape the artist intended it to look like.
