Lord krishna marquetry art work – 96/60 cm. completed summer 2011. This is my favourite of all the marquetry works i carried out over a 10 year period. This work  was inspired by my interest in the Indian spiritual tradition. the piece radiates Lord krishna’s divine power & compasion for all life. An extensive range of veneers from around the world were incorporated in this work. Venners like mahogony  for the background , pear for the skin tone , walnut for hair pine & oak for the pillers & many other veneers were utilized to bring beauty & harmony to this artwork. For the wood finish i used french polish to really bring out the beauty & clarity of the wood veneers .
