This marquetry is made of over 1350 separate wood pieces.
The above piece consists of just natural woods without any artificial or additives.
This is one of the ghazals of Hafez, the Iranian poet.
I’ve made this work eight years ago.
110*80 cm

That is crazy beautiful. Did you need glasses after you finished? Because that would have put my eyes over the edge. What kinds of woods did you use?

That is beautiful, thank you for sharing this with us.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Have your say...
