Radjab is a woodworking master recognized for his wonderfully carved and intricate lacquer painted chess sets, tables and boxes. He learned the tradition from his father, a master of making traditional cradles and painted dowry boxes in Bukhara. The lacquer painting often depicts local people, traditional floral patterns and birds.

Radjab works and teaches alongside fellow craftsmen of the “Kharrot” group to revive the ancient art of Uzbek culture. His work has received the UNESCO Seal of Excellence for Handicraft Products in Central Asia.
