Dragon Isle by cl2007 Dragon Isle by cl2007
my summer intarsia project- another dragon :lol:
15" x 13" wide (38 x 34 cm)
made from walnut, cedar and the milky quartz crystals are maple.

approximately 27 hours not counting design time (and extended due to my band saw breaking).

inspiration- Fantasia's (Disney) Night on Bald Mountain (Mussorgsky) and Roger Dean's (all those Yes album covers) floating islands combined with my fascination with crystals

edit: new photo

edit: Thanks for the DD :woohoo:

The suggester said: "Dragons are just majestic creatures of the fantastic realm of imagination."
And with Dragon Isle by *cl2007 we see a detailed intarsia work with vibrant colors from the different types of woods used. ( Suggested by simonsaz3 and Featured by MyntKat )
