Marquetry is an art set of thin wooden plates (veneers) of various colors and textures. Pieces of wood, docking along the edges between each other, form an integral picture, which is then glued to the base. The role of paints in marquetry is played by the texture and shade of the tree, so the most important task is to determine the composition and artistic skill of the master to choose and combine the right veneer fragments.
The high cost of the finished product is due primarily to the laborious manufacturing process, requiring up to 90% of manual labor.
