In some small way, I hope this lets the people who put their lives on the line to protect us know that we appreciate what they do for us. In talking to some people while making this, it seems some forget that Police Officers are not just there on the highway to give us a speeding ticket. When they come on duty they could give their life to keep us safe and as in my previous pieces with the military and fire dept. it puts me in awe of their courage. I hope that this piece will give us all a pause for thought, because this pattern was made from an actual picture of a fallen police officer’s funeral.
It is 22”x161/2”, has 287 different pieces, and is made out of 18 different woods. No stains were used to achieve colors and it is finished in satin. It was made with cherry, cocobola, ebony, aspen, english walnut, blood wood, babinga, spalted tamerin, wenge, ash, curly maple, osage, black palm, american walnut, yellow heart, purple heart, pauduck, blue pine.
Thanks for looking.
