It’s probably hard for Daniella Mooney’s wooden (or is it?) sculpture Parquetry not to illicit some sort of reaction from a viewer, whether it be a smile or an expression of confusion. The South African artist’s sculptural work consists mostly of natural materials such as wood, stone, moss and crystals, with meticulous detail in their crafting as can be seen above in the process photos of Parquetry and in more detail here. Mooney tends to explore themes of alchemy, magic and natural phenomena and I’d say this piece is pretty magical.
