Marquetry in Argentina

There is some very interesting marquetry being produced today in Argentina. It is heavily influenced by the historical styles reminiscent of the unique art produced by the earliest inhabitants of this ancient and noble country.

The styles of those early arts transfer so well from their original pottery formats into the medium of veneer marquetry that you would have thought that those designs were originally intended for the marquetry medium itself!

Here then, are just a few examples from the vast catalogue of today's beautifully produced Argentinian marquetry for you to enjoy:
