Your work is so distinctive Dusan. There is never a doubt who the artist is when we see a new piece.
The faithful depiction of the wondful original photo is a testament to your technical ability but the treatment of the background is pure artistic inspiration. These are beautiful and as with all of your work, evoke the emotions of the viewer.
All three are perfect but I do like the veneer choices in the featured one.

You continue to inspire. Thank you my friend.

Beautiful work once more, This is without a doubt one of my favorite works from you! I agree with shipwright and like version 3 best. Your choice of veneer has made each piece seem to impart something a little different even though they are the same picture. Thanks for sharing.

All are beautiful works. It is interesting to see how your choice of wood selection has created different shadows and highlights and giving each picture a different feel. Wonderful work.

Thank you friends for your comments!
Version 3 is made from truly the most exquisite and most expensive veneer. It has been shown in the work that are the most difficult to cut, especially olive veneer on the details of clothing girls. Beautiful sumptuous veneer, however, it’s amazing how hard it is to work with him. But that’s the challenge and craft!
As the challenge of textured wood, veneer, create emotion.
