This is a 2 sided cared piece of curly maple with as hand used as a topographic element to represent Zion Nattional Park (raised Mountains with local stones) and the Recessed Grand Canyon with local Navajo Red Sand and Patina Copper oval outlined in Turquoise stones. This piece stands vertically and pivots using a bearing on a base that counters the weight of the material.

This simple 8”x10” is a depression with sandstone flocking. The enhancement is of wouthwestern flavor that depicts texture ad terrain.
