Buttes of Monument Valley, Arizona  
Highly Commended in the 2012 International Marquetry Exhibition, Chelmsford, England
This piece is 13 [33.0cm] x 8-3/4 [22.2cm] and was taken from an internet photo. It presented quite a challenge. I really enjoyed the interpretation from photo to veneer. It was finished with 5 coats of water based sanding sealer and a coat of high gloss polyurethane varnish. Finally rubbed with Renaissance wax polish. 12 week period, Scalpel cut.
