This piece is part of a series that represent taking what I have learned and experienced from early life and where you take it.
All of the wood was sawn on the bandsaw to give it a nice texture. There are multiple different finishing techniques, ebonizing, staining, wax and other stuff. The doors are a frame work that are first covered with tiny lath strips and then plastered.

No offense taken, it's a cabinet or box that hangs from the wall. Either one is fine, It's sculptural obviously but a lot of furniture is. Most any furniture has elements that are decorative and have no structural importance. So basically all the extra stuff like the wings, and overall shape are just part of my goal to convey a feeling and a way of thought. Read the desription above for the short version of what im getting at. Take a look at my blog for more of my work if you are interested. It has multiple pages with more work that warrants the "What is it" question.
