Monaco Maestro

This marquetry is composed of 1,300 separate inlays of various shapes and sizes, cut from 23 different precious woods, and varnished with a satin finish.

Artist Notes:
"Michael Schumacher gets the fastest lap at the 2006 Monaco Grand Prix. He is shown rounding the tight hairpin bend at Turn 6. In the backgound is the north-east entrance to the famous Monte Carlo Casino. For the realization of this masterpiece, I pushed the limits of my technical expertise, for example going to great lengths to faithfully reproduce the names of sponsors, with joints invisible to the naked eye. Marquetry of this level is seldom possible in a career. The beauty of this artwork is enhanced by the choice of materials which reflect light. The car is made from sycamore and hornbeam, dyed in Ferrari red. The hotel is in rippled sycamore, common elm, and African ebony. The foliage is cut from different varieties of vavona burr, from Californian sequoia trees. The track is in fossil oak."
