Home > Marquetry portraits
The marquetry version is an original way of making portraits.
The subtlety of this approach lies in the way it interprets the features,
the characteristic expressions, and with a limited color palette.

Childers sculpture with inlays in marquetry.
This sculpture with inlays in marquetry was designed for the town of Childers in the Queensland region of Australia. Each detail has a significant meaning and is described below:
- The poppies, made in Jarrahwood, come from an Australian sawmill, thanks to Mr. Lazarides, to honor the memory of Allied soldiers.
- The cornflower is the emblem of the French soldiers.
- The eyes in marquetry are inspired by one Thuillier collection photo.
- The flame was made of oak from a tree that grew less than 2 miles from the wagon where the armistice was signed. You can see traces of a bomb fragment.
- The bird was made with shrapnel by Father André Marie.
- The rose is the symbolic flower sculpted on the Vignacourt sideboard, an iconic element of regional furniture.
