This one was a real blast to make; it gave me the opportunity to get really creative with grain patterns. I was actually waking up in the middle of the night thinking about it and how to proceed. I appreciate the Native American culture and I wanted to do something to honor that. I was originally trying to show a culture that is caught in a vortex and disappearing. Again, as I show it to other people they see something else. So far I have gotten that it looks like ying and yang, lost love, difference between men and women. I guess that is part of art and a good thing that people see different things in a piece. Please let me know what you see.

It is 15 inches wide by 11 inches tall and almost all of the pieces have some kind of spacer behind it ranging from 1/8 to 1/2. It is made from curly maple, cocobolo, babinga, wenge, cortez, walnut, red heart, mahogany, aspen, ebony, yellow heart, Spanish cedar, and an oak frame. No stains were used to achieve colors and are finished in satin.

Thanks for looking!
