That is one seriously beautiful piece of work, i love the colour of the background chosen for this cutting, and i can only stare in awe of it.
Many thanks for giving me inspiration to carry on..

Wow, that is really pretty. And I love the contrast also. I am just getting started sawing and have done a contrast like that. When you put it in a room it just seems to come alive. Great work (~..~) Someone will enjoy that for years to come and never tire of it.

That is a lovely piece, what is the backing wood, please? I like the backings to be other than black from time to time.

Hours of cutting, approx 30. Type of backing wood. I have no clue. It's birch on one side and a smoothe darker color on the other. I get most of my wood from dumpsters and I don't know much about wood types. The thickness of the wood is 1/4 inch.
Sanding required..yes because I use carbon paper to put my patterns onto wood so those lines have to be sanded off as well as the fuzzies on the back from using spirals. I keep the large pieces and the pieces surrounding delicate areas, then put them back in place to sand with a palm sander.
Thanks to all of you for the kind words.
Unfortunately due to high licensing costs from the artist, I can only do it for myself and cannot offer the pattern or cutting
