Hummingbirds - Marquetry by amazoncanvas Hummingbirds - Marquetry by amazoncanvas
The background with streaks of various colors comes from our common wood specie call Poplar, but rare when it contains colors like this one. Laurel Burl is an exotic wood specie I used for the green leaves, when carefully positioned it can be effective for rendering leaves, branches and even fabric as seen in my other work - Afternoon Delight.

This artwork is made by cutting and gluing exotic, natural wood veneers together.

D'oh! By "here," I meant Traditional Arts/Miscellaneous, not Daily Deviations--where I'm not AT ALL surprised it belongs.

Amazing, delicate work!

Didn't expect to see marquetry here rather than in the Artisan Crafts/Woodworking area, but it certainly works either way.
