comments: I can take no credit for the focal point of this wall piece, the 6" X 6" ceramic tile depicting a white unicorn. It was purchased in New Orleans about twenty years ago from a waterfront shop. I always felt it was good enough to merit enhanced presentation, and this framed work is the result of uniting it with a superb piece of pecan veneer. The biased configuration of the veneer is an attempt to ensure that the wood background is not completely overpowered by the dark and highly contrasting tile. The blue lines are grooves incised by router before painting.
