This object has the following keywords:
  • inlay - Any process by which small pieces of one material are inserted into a larger piece of another so as to create a design.
  • marquetry - The technique in which small pieces of specially shaped wood, or sometimes other materials such as ivory, are incorporated into a suface of decorative veneer. Distinguished from "inlay," where decorative pieces are set into a solid ground; in marquetry, the entire surface is veneered.
