100/60cm completed 2013. this Marquetry work inspired by my love of mythology & sacred themes was my most challenging work to date , taking 2 years to complete. I’ve calculated that hundreds of separate veneers have been incorporated in this marquetry work. Some of the more common veneers used being pear, walnut , orange ,oak , mahogany to name a few. The fine detail of the Persian marquetry technique being the fine use of the fret saw. The hair texture gives a fine example of how this works . The shape of the clouds was inspired by Persian fantasy . For the fine finish a Lacquer spray was applied.
