About Marquetry:

Marquetry model is an artistic masterpiece, skillfully crafted from pieces of wood of varying colors, amalgamated with a delicate balance of artistry and precision.

Marquetry, a decorative art form, has seen its techniques and materials evolve over centuries. It offers resilience beyond that of wood painting, prompting a resurgence in popularity during the European Renaissance.

The association of colors and the quest for unique patterns, whether in wood or straw marquetry, find expression in this meticulous discipline. The arrangement and subtle pairing of different wood species and patterns serve as brushstrokes in this art form, giving birth to precise decorations and intricate inlaid paintings.
