This is an intarsia project where I’ve used about 24 different wood species. It shows a view from the inside of a room, from an open (but moveable window). The city is a small Brazilian old town called Ouro Preto, that means Black Gold, in Portuguese. Each massive piece of the city view was individually scroll-sawn, and sculpted, in order to be interlocked with no voids to compose the complete view, where no process was used to change the original colors of the wood species. The main part contains about 3,500 parts.

I’d say something, but my jaw is still bouncing on the floor. Incredible.

Totally awesome. How long did you work on that, any idea on hours?

Even if a person was to put a print of that view in that witty frame, hiding out as a window it would be pretty cool. The fact that this isn’t a print but a LOT of small, individually shaped pieces, and arranged to look like a a Masterpiece painting.

WOW.

Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by. Looking forward to seeing what else ya been up to.
