  • Mokuga wood decoration

    Mokuga (“wood picture”) is a decorative technique in which slices of wood several millimeters thick are cut into geometric pieces such as rectangles or triangles and then attached to the surface of an object to create a design. Complicated works may use over one thousand small parts, carefully arranged with attention to the alignment of the grain.
