The Irish Map
Height 10cm Width 8cm
This small island produced an Irish diaspora which today numbers 80 million people all over the world. Irish people take great pride in their 'green isle' on the farthest edge of western Europe.
This carving is made by a process known as Intarsia, which is the ancient art of making pictorial mosaics by laying precious and exotic woods onto a solid wood surface. Seven different woods are used to make these Celtic designs.
