Da Vinci

Year: 2023

Piece no. 01 of this design.

Overall size: 20.5 x 28.5 x 2.5 cm.

Weight: 440.3 grams.

2 mm solid wood. cedar, cherry, ramin and mahogany.  

Iroko veneer on the back and side finishes with chalk paint on the plywood board used as structural support. 

A tribute to Leonardo Da Vinci, his ingenuity and his dreams, such as flying. Little Bear has made an exact reproduction of one of the designs of the Renaissance genius, but given his naive nature he has not anticipated the presence of seagulls, jealous of his air space.

For my part, the three-dimensional design of the wings of these seagulls is one of the challenges that has cost me the most. Playing properly with the different layers and colors of the wood to faithfully reproduce the original drawing is a complex puzzle to solve.

This is a small work, delicate in its details and complex in its three-dimensionality, made with the best solid woods. Wood cut with laser light and glued with great care.

This is the first and only piece made in 2023 with this design.

This design is always built with different woods, being sold as a unique piece identifiable through its grain, recognizable in the archival photographic references that the author makes of each piece and shows on this website. An unambiguous form of identification.

This piece is only sold upon request. Given the complexity of its execution, it may take a minimum of four weeks to finish and deliver.

For any questions or concerns, please contact the author.

This piece is shipped in a cardboard box, protected inside with extra-firm foam (density 40 kg per cubic meter) and outside with plastic protection.

I recommend not exposing this piece to direct sunlight, or high temperatures or places with high humidity: solid wood is a living and delicate material that must be protected. If necessary, any dust that may accumulate can be removed with a soft brush. The piece was only polished with natural wax: it does not contain varnishes or dyes.

The piece has a built-in hanger on the back (it does not appear in the photograph), in case you want to hang it on a wall.
