the marquetry work "The Singing Butler"

This is the marquetry version of Jack Vettriano's famous painting "the singing butler". Size: 9x11" for the marquetry, 16x19" for the frame. material: more than a dozen types of wood veneers. Finish: mineral oil + varnish. It took me the whole winter to finish this piece.

Design or Plan used: My own design
