Khatam Marquetry Inlay Wood Wall Plaque

Khatam is a Persian version of marquetry, art forms made by decorating the surface of wooden articles with delicate pieces of wood, bone and metal precisely-cut geometrical shapes. Marquetry designing, as one of the main handicrafts of Iran, is highly elaborate. In each cubic centimetre of space, up to approximately 250 pieces of metal, bone, shell (mother of pearl) and wood are laid side by side, glued together in stages, smoothed, oiled and polished (the whole process is hand made). You can watch the process of making Khatam in the YouTube link here:
